- A young girl was instructed to present herself as different characters through a fake talent scout

A 12-year-old girl is said to have become the newest victim of a serial scammer – claiming to be a talent scout – who asked her to perform a series of bizarre tasks.
The young girl from Melbourne, who dreamed of becoming an actress, got from a woman named & # 39; Marley & # 39; told them to go to different locations and pretended to be different characters after the couple was online in April.
The woman – who, according to the Samantha Azzopardi family, is 31, flew the girl to Sydney for an unattended trip, where she was instructed to go to numerous places, including Centrelink and the Royal Children's & # 39; s Hospital.

The woman claimed she auditioned the child for a voice-over role for an upcoming Disney movie, and said she was a talent scout from United Talent Agency.
The agency could not find a record of having a woman named & # 39; Marley & # 39; for them.
The 12-year-old stepmother said that the deception had deeply affected the girl and her family.
& (39) (She) and Marley had several meetings in the city that we now know have done strange things that pretend to be someone else, & # 39; her stepmother told me News.com.au.
She said that & # 39; Marley & # 39; her stepdaughter had instructed her to go to Centrelink and to write a letter saying she had seen a ghost.
She claimed that the fraudster had also given her legal aid a fake ID and birth certificate, while at the same time buying the girl expensive clothes.
& # 39; Then I knew something was wrong and I immediately felt it was taking care of it, & # 39; said the girl's stepmother.
Azzopardi now has the child's birth certificate and the data from her mother's medicare card.
The scammer had worked as an au pair for the Tom and Jazze Jervis family from Melbourne for a year before fleeing her true identity.
Earlier this year, Azzopardi also told a 13-year-old girl from Melbourne that her name & # 39; Coco & # 39; used to be.
The girl was forced to execute strange instructions for another potential acting role, including pretending that her sister had died during random conversations with strangers.
Azzopardi paid for the girl and her family to stay in Melbourne, but under the name of her former employer, Jazze Jervis.
Azzopardi has more than 40 different aliases and a long history of imitations.

In 2010, she told the authorities in Brisbane that she was a 14-year-old schoolgirl who needed housing before being convicted of falsifying documents and false representation.
A similar event occurred in 2011, where she posed as a 16-year-old gymnast from Russia, claiming that her entire family had died of a suicide in France.
In 2013, she was found on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, while telling the authorities that she was the victim of sex trafficking.
Azzopardi drew photos of a stick figure lying on a bed surrounded by men and said she had been raped.
Reportedly, authorities spent $ 350,000 on the investigation before they discovered that she had lied and kicked her out of the country.
In 2017, she posed as a 13-year-old schoolgirl named Harper Hart, where she misled teachers to leave her classes at a Sydney school.
Azzopardi pleaded guilty to four counts of the unfair financial gain by cheating after being caught lying about her age at the school and was imprisoned for a year.
Victorian police are currently investigating Azzopardi.
