Conman Impersonating Zak Bagans Swindles $35k Out Of 'Ghost Adventures' Fan
In February, a Ghost Adventures fan from New Zealand was conned out of her lifesavings and landed criminal charges after a scammer impersonating the ghost hunter Zak contacted her.
Kim-Marie Jackson, a 46-year-old carer, started following the 'Ghost Adventures' frontman in 2018. With more than 750k followers on Instagram it was unlikely that she would get a private message from the famous paranormal investigator, but she soon did and the conversation lead to her losing $35k.
The messages were sent from an unofficial account in Zak's name. Kim-Marie told Otago Daily Times that she was sceptical at first, but the scammer did everything he could to convince her that he was the real Zak Bagans. Kim-Marie said, "he was good, he really made me believe it."
Eventually the imposter transferred sum of money out of the blue in May 2019 and instructed her to send the money on to an overseas account. By doing this she had inadvertently become part of an international fraud syndicate. The criminal gang had used her as a money mule to move the funds, something which is illegal in New Zealand, but police let her off with a warning.
