For several years, a person dubbed the “Con Queen” had been pretending to be various high-powered female film-industry executives. She allegedly offered Hollywood hopefuls a dream job with lucrative pay—but with a catch. To secure the job, the workers had to pay their own way to Jakarta, with the promise of being reimbursed. However, on arrival in Indonesia, there was a never-ending carousel of delays and excuses, along with additional cash payments for driver fees, photography permits and more. Ultimately, the “Con Queen” disappeared, leaving the workers out of pocket for the thousands of dollars they spent abroad without a job and dashed dreams.
