Bogus Email Addresses


One modeling company put the pictures of celebrities on its website as supposedly being involved with the firm. Beneath each name and picture there was an email address, e.g. celebrity@modelingcompany.com. These were ficticious. The email address may have worked, but all email sent to that address went directly to the bogus company, not the celebrity.

When one of the featured celebrities with an email address on their site was contacted, he denied any involvement whatsoever, and said he had never given them permission.

An aspiring model said she signed up for the service because of the celebrity endorsements.
