    Have any of you, with high profile auctions, had any "groupies" or weird people who email you everyday wanting to be your new best friend? Just curious. I've got a couple people who email me daily wanting an update on my life. They ask all sorts of weird questions too. It's pretty freaky.

    I have gotten quite a few emails from people (term used loosely) claiming to be fairy hunters, dying fairies, fairies in need of a get the picture. On the other end of the spectrum come the people claiming to own a publishing company and would I please send my manuscript. Quite a few of these bogus publishing houses send me emails with 10 spelling mistakes...hmmm sure I'll send you something all right!!

    Being that I've never had a high profile auction (and probably never will :( ) I have no experience with this. BUT....of course I have an opinion :D First of all that is too weird and creepy! Do you answer them? If so what I'd do from now on is just delete (or read if you have to.....think I would :)) and then just ignore them......don't answer.....unless of course these same people are bidding BIG on your auctions! :D Maybe they'll just go away???

    Mine was not high profile in the $ sense, but rather in the # of viewers, watchers and comments. In fact it probably would have only sold for $36 if it wasn't for Andrew (thank you again) going in and trying for that last bid. BTW the "bones" went to a taxidermist... :lol:

    Yep! I still get e-mails from people wanting to "borrow"
    Yeah, ok.. :eek:/
    & some asking me to list things for them... Like that will work?
    but most are nice people just wanting to know how everything is going.
    I also went through all the questions I had during the auction (surprised me that I could still get to them through and found that the orignal winning bidder of the "ghost cane" had sent me 6 questions/comments that were strange & a couple just plain scary!
    I added them to my "Ghost cane auction results" page. I thought he was just being nice letting GP have it. yeah, ok :eek:/

    I have never had either or but was going to say if they really creep you out you can always have some fun with it and reply with fake information ,,, if nothing else it would be entertaining :)
