Creepy Never Ends

Got another creepy fan request:

Hi Erin. I'm writing to see how I might get a color signed headshot for my son.  He's a fan. I'd like to surprise him on his birthday.

He is a beginning cinematographer and part-time actor and is working on writing his first film script. He is finishing grad school this semester.

Can you honor this autograph request. May God bless you. AJ"

Strangely, this person did not leave their address for me to send said autograph. Nor did he give me his son’s name. Nor does the name“AJ” match the name on in the “from” line of the email (John Fox?)


UPDATE: I have had a bunch of other experiences that I recommend being wary of- click here to check out my posts about them.

Erin Cronican's career as a professional actor and career coach has spanned the last 25 years in New York City, Los Angeles and San Diego.

  1. Isn't it funny how a couple little things can set off the CREEPY radar?

  2. I found your blog by googling John Fox+autograph request...because i got the same creeepy email! I had a feeling this was not legitimate. But I wonder why is he/she/whoever asking for them?

  3. I can never quite figure that out. I mean, what kind of non-legitimate reason could there be for wanting an autographed photo? It is beyond me.

    I got a 2nd request this Mr. Fox this week and, again, he did not leave an address to send the picture to. So odd...

    Anyway- thanks for stopping by- glad to know ya!


Thanks for commenting- YOU ROCK!
