16: SCAMMED!: The Lighthouse cult plus the shocking truth behind the McDonald’s scam

On Eavesdroppin’ comedy podcast this week, hosts Geordie & Michelle talk about a cult that masquerades as self-help mentoring, plus how an unknown caller got dozens of people to strip-search their employees…

What if someone told you they could help you fulfil your dreams, achieve your career goals AND make you a better person? This week, Michelle looks at Lighthouse, a self-help group that offered mentoring to people that was meant to help you realise your true potential and become a success in life and business – except it was actually a cult. Listen now to find out what reeled people in – and what happened when they tried to get out…

Geordie looks at a one of the most hard-to-believe scams that happened in the late 90s and early 2000s… Imagine you’re a manager at a fast-food chain and the police call telling you that one of your members of staff has stolen money from a customer and needs to be strip searched immediately. Yep – that’s the gist of it, and saddest of all, people fell for the scam and countless women were traumatised by strip searches and more.Listen to hear more!

So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle for this week’s episode, plus chat about MAFS Australia, avalanche deaths, a startling voice note from one of our Eavesdroppers and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast.
