Please be advised that Kathrine Marie Wilson (born April 9, 1990 in Auckland, New Zealand and currently residing in Los Angeles [UPDATE: in New York City as of May 2012]) is a skilled con artist who preys on comedians and those in the entertainment industry.
Kate Wilson represents herself as a New Zealand/Australian “celebrity,” an international comedy booker (including New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Paris, London, and Hong Kong), and a sound engineer for live bands. She claims to be connected to the entertainment industry and Hollywood, to have a production agreement with FOX Australia, and to have professional experience as a writer, actor, and model, and a background in musical theater. In fact, none of these is true.
She has no background or connections in the comedy or entertainment industry whatsoever. The closest thing she has are Facebook friends in entertainment whom she has conned into believing that she can help them. She promises to fulfill whatever it is they’re pursuing and then invents excuses and delays as she exploits them for money, housing, vacations and trips, and anything else she needs or desires.
Kate Wilson uses email aliases to create the illusion of having a team of people behind her and a network of entertainment industry. These emails include anything under the @katewilsonmedia.com domain, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and more. She also has a friend, Natalia Antropova of Hastings, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, who is an accomplice that corroborates Kate’s lies.
Among her more clever cons is setting up meetings for her marks with TV executives. In fact, the TV executive is played by an actor she finds on StarNow.com. The actor, in turn, believes he or she is auditioning for a Punk’d-like reality show that runs Hollywood hopefuls through the ringer. Thus, the actor has unwittingly played a part in Kate’s con, and her mark believes that Kate is his connection to VIPs.
Kate Wilson will try to gain your sympathies by inventing crises (such as problems with addiction, having belongings stolen, getting sabotaged by people, etc.), mostly evident in her Facebook and Twitter posts. She presents herself as a victim, when she is usually the criminal.
Despite her claims, she is not related to anyone in the United States. Previously known as Katie Milne, she is the foster daughter of Michael Milne and Wendy Milne of Auckland, New Zealand.
As of early November 2011, Kate Wilson has overstayed her 90-day Visa Waiver Program in the United States and is an illegal alien. She had an illegal marriage on November 10, 2011 to one of her comedian victims, whom she conned into believing that she will pay up to $30,000 for this service. She hasn’t paid a dime, and he’s now trying to get out of it. She recently told him if he does, “it will end badly” for him.
Kate Wilson often gets what she wants out of people by intimidating them with threats, such as calling the police on them for real or made up crimes, suing them for all the free “work” she’s doing for them, or cancelling these “opportunities” altogether.
Anyone who has been conned by Kate Wilson should please share his or her experiences in the comment section.
For questions, disputes, requests for evidence, or anything else, please leave a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to this website, Kate Wilson has changed her hometown to Los Angeles and posted the following on her Facebook account:
“The recent posts that have been flying around facebook are unfortunate. It is up to people whether they believe these comments or whether they understand that that this is Hollywood, people will attack you, people will try and tear you down and people will try to destroy you.
As most people will be aware, this has not been the first time someone has posted untrue statements about me. There’s nothing you can do to prevent it from happening, it comes down to how you deal with it. From my understanding the person who posted these comments obtained their “facts” from someone and his brother who are currently being investigated by the police for drug dealing, battery, theft, prostituting women and fraud. I gave a statement to the police against this person and have agreed to give a testimonial against in any legal proceedings. This post was another pathetic attack against me; I’m not going to try defending myself every time something untrue pops up somewhere.
I hope the people who have come across this post use their best judgement and remind themselves that this is Hollywood. I hope that people also keep in mind that these posts may not hurt me, I have a thick skin, but they hurt the people around me, the people that care about me and the people that love me, people who never made a decision to be part of this industry but are suffering because of the actions of others.
I have made a decision to leave Los Angeles and the entertainment industry to focus on myself and focusing on maintaining a normal healthy positive lifestyle. I cannot thank everyone enough for the love and the support.
This is Kate Wilson’s marriage license (the husband’s information is blocked out for his protection). It proves that her hometown is not Los Angeles (it lists her origin as “New Zealand”) and that she did, indeed, have an illegal marriage on November 10, 2011.
The more Kate Wilson denies the statements on this site, the more facts and evidence that will be released (and what’s been posted thus far is only the half of it). The same goes for anyone else who cares to dispute the claims, and they are quite encouraged to do just that. Whereas Kate Wilson backs up her arguments with clever and persuasive lies, this site presents actual evidence. Readers may research Kate Wilson online, though they will find little more than posts in TheDirty.com, all of which were written by Kate Wilson herself to perpetuate the illusion that she is some sort of celebrity in order for her to conduct her scams.
If anything written here is untrue, then this is serious libel and Kate Wilson is more than welcome to pursue legal action.
ADDENDUM B (added 5/14/12):
After this website was posted, con artist Kate Wilson relocated from Los Angeles to New York City, where she has resided since at least May 1, 2012. As an illegal alien, she has found housing and employment by illegally working as an escort in the East 60′s section of Manhattan, under the name “Amanda.” Evidence of this claim can be found here.
We urge comedians and New Yorkers in general to beware.
