We’re all surprised that producer Bravo Andy Cohen even had enough time in his day to horse around with this stranger in his DM.

He shared a weird conversation he had with an individual who tried to scam him out of money. The individual directly messaged Cohen under the guise of an “alternative” account from his friend Anderson Cooper.

Andy knew pretty early in the conversation what they were trying to do. But he was bored and decided to mess with the person. Cohen posted the entire exchange to his Instagram story and even jokingly created a headline, “Adventures in Engaging with a Catfish (I was bored).”

One indication the messages were not coming from Cooper was his profile photo was different from his actual account photo on Instagram. Also, the conversation coming from the fake Cooper account was clunky and Cohen notes the fake Cooper used terms and phrases Cooper doesn’t normally use either. He then offers to ship the gift card directly to the friend in question but then says he has no idea who this person is, plus he knows Cooper’s friends. Fake Cooper keeps needling Cohen about sending the money so Cohen comes up with the perfect plan.

“You’re really BOSSY this morning, you know that? I left an envelope with 1000 cash with my doorman. It has your name on it. Come pick it up. See you later.”

Now that’s funny, that imposter was probably saying wait, I need the address.
