A close call for this actress….
Theresa Longo is used to brands reaching out for collaboration. Once, after extensive flattery and “Brand gifts”, the “rep” set Theresa up for a ‘massive’ acting job, extremely well paid with no audition. The flight was paid for, and Theresa urged to go to film the “role of a lifetime”. Our side wanted security information, vehicle and licence plate information for airport pickup – and none was provided. We called filming locations and checked with the Georgia film registry – no major productions matching the job description listed. Alarm bells went off. We were blocked by “production” when we demanded vehicle information for airport pickup. Suddenly, the trip was called off.
The perpetrators attempted to lure Theresa onto a plane to Atlanta after months of emails, meticulous sizing for clothing, shoes other ‘grooming gifts’ and more. They hit with a ton of flattery about looks and acting ability – and assured me I was the “star” they wanted to work with. This attempted luring was reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Internet Crimes Units in USA and Canada.
