DAYS's Scott On Web Fraud|
If you think you're chatting with James Scott (EJ, DAYS) through his official MySpace page (www.myspace.com/officialjamesscott), turns out you're not. "I want to alert people to the fact that this is a fraudulent entity," says the actor, who only recently discovered just how misrepresented he was online. "The whole reason this came about is because I did an event in Hartford [CT] and people contacted my MySpace page because they wanted to find out more about it. I looked at it and there is a MySpace page that is supposed to be my official MySpace page, though it is not. It has nothing to do with me. You might think, 'Well, it's fans who have made a MySpace page dedicated to me and they're pushing it by saying it's official.' Well, that would be true, but they've gone a step further in that they are doing two things that are very misleading, one of which is a blog, which is not mine and the second is, they are 'tweeting' as me. Alison Sweeney (Sami) found this out. Someone from my 'official' MySpace page was sending messages as if they were from me. It didn't really bother me, but the problem is there are a lot of people who don't know that there are people are pretending to be me." Scott says he isn't online at all. "I don't have an official Web site, a MySpace page or a Facebook page and I am not on Twitter. I'm a technophobe; I barely use my computer and I don't do social networking of any kind. And I can't imagine I'm the only person this has happened to."
