The rapper, best known for playing the character Damian in the TV series Fugueuse, posted a 13-minute video on TikTok this Sunday recounting the scam.

Megan Lalonde, 24, offered her fake services on TikTok or Instagram by posing as a supposed lawyer to defraud Quebecers on online shopping sites.

To achieve her goals, Quebec masked her real body by using filters on her face and modifying other parts using software.

Finally, Megan Lalonde would actually be a mother from Drummondville with a long record of fraud, according to a magazine article.

On Monday she promised an interview with TVA Nouvelles, but she played along with us. The meeting held at the Court of Saint-Jerome never materialized.

Many victims

Rapper Yes McCann also took the stand, according to his video posted on TikTok.

He thought he was in contact with this lawyer, but all the time, behind this facade, it was Megan Lalonde who was communicating with the artist.

She even asked him out on a date that never happened.

For his part, Dominique Murray also told Yves Poirier that Megan Lalonde was going to sell him, at the liquidation site she managed, a gazebo for $4,000 that he never received.

Murray says he is in contact with dozens of alleged fraud victims.

In particular, a Drummondville landlord told us that Megan Lalonde and her partner Tommy Phaneuf owed them $23,000 in unpaid rent and damages.

The Quebec Bar Association is still in the verification phase.
