The fake voice killed it for me

Great idea for a podcast but the fake old lady voice irritated me to the point where I can’t listen to it anymore.I don’t understand the need for it, Kate could have just used her normal voice. Unsure if it is an attempt at humour, but I couldn’t bear listening to it anymore.

Great idea, terrible delivery

Absolutely insulting to the people who have been genuinely ripped off and shared their story. The hideous voice completely detracted from what could have been an interesting story, I couldn’t finish the series.

Liked it, but got a bit garish

Really liked the concept, the voice started to get on my nerves a little bit. It would have been good to evolve the concept a little and have had a few scammers on the go.

Interesting content but that voice is awful

The interviews are really interesting, being able to hear what the scammer says it’s really interesting but the voice that Kate puts on for Barb is almost done unbearable to listen to and grates on your brain

A funny little hybrid of a podcast...

*Spoiler alert*The five star reviews and the one star reviews are all correct: this is at times funny and interesting, and at other times cringy and tedious. As a whole, it doesn’t actually work. “Carey”, who appears to have much to learn about wooing women for real or pretend, obviously begins to suspect that the bumbling “Barbara” is a fake and after a while he can barely be bothered going along with the illusion. It would have been more interesting to choose a slicker scam operator in the first place, and to cast the net with a more convincing persona. However, there is a lot of enjoyment to be had at knowing Kate has just woken him up in the middle of the night again, and the bit where she gets him to sing along to the sound of music is utterly priceless. If only he knew there were thousands of people laughing at him! On a more serious note my heart goes out to the real victims. May some good karma come your way.

Really disappointing

This promised to be a really interesting and funny podcast, but ended up being the exact opposite. The interesting and compelling interviews with women who had been scammed were undermined by an irritating and contrived set up to catch a scammer. Kate's impression of a mature lady falling for her scammer was dithering, simpering, over-the-top posh. It completely undermined the stated message of the show that the women who fall for these scams are normal, intelligent women. Advice to Kate - keep the concept but have a good listen to those ladies interviewed and rework your character. It could be far funnier and have more pathos if your character was not a total walk over.

Interesting concept but a little OTT

Interviews with victims are good. Kate’s characters voice grated on me after a while.There is some interesting reading over in the Hall of Shame at 419eater.com which posts stories about scamming the scammer which some of the listeners to this podcast may enjoy.

HIghly Entertaining

Loving this just binged on discovery. However Barb sounds like she is 85 and probably not up to a hot young lover. More Kate please, More!!!!!!!
