As the Click On Detroit reports, the Eminem scam continues to grow after Help Me Hank first exposed that a high-tech thief was pretending to be Marshall Mathers to steal people’s identities.
“I was having my coffee in the morning and the phone rang. He said, ‘This is Marshall (Mathers).’” – said Frederick Mclelland, of Taylor.
The scammer is not just targeting people in Detroit locally, but also across the entire country. A woman from the state of Washington showed Help Me Hank messages she received from someone posing as Marshall Mathers.
He complimented her appearance and, in a later exchange, asked her to go and get him an eBay card.
“If he can use that person’s likeness, use that person’s reputation to bring people into the scam, it’s actually a pretty good fraud,” one expert said.
