EP. 201 — 200th Episode: We Are Scamily! w/ Amber Ruffin & Lacey Lamar

Hallelujah Con-gregation! We’re celebrating the 200th episode of Scam Goddess with Amber Ruffin and Lacy Lamar. They discuss how one of the most expensive and rare pink diamonds was stolen from one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the Middle East. Plus, a 68-year-old Los Angeles native has been indicted on five counts of wire fraud related to a fake hemp scheme as he was finishing up a 135-month house arrest for fraud. Stay Schemin’!
