Penny Marshall - Penny Marshall Duped By Lamar Odom Impostor

Actress/director Penny Marshall has allegedly been scammed out of more than $5,000 (£3,125) by a man posing as an assistant to former Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom.
The Laverne and Shirley veteran, a big fan of Odom's former team, was reportedly targeted at a Lakers game last month (May12) when the conman handed Marshall a phone number said to belong to the sportsman himself.
She went on to exchange text messages with a man she thought was Odom over a number of days, and willingly obliged when the impostor asked for a $5,000 loan.
However, the communication ceased once she sent over the money - and it was only then that Marshall realised she had been duped, reports Tmz.com.
The actress reportedly got in touch with the real Odom - who is married to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian - and promptly filed a police report when she learned he didn't actually have an assistant.
An investigation into allegations of grand theft is now underway.
