I learned about an imposter using my name, Victor "Vino" Merritt on LinkedIn. For over 3 years, I had no idea that a fake Victor Merritt was posing as me. This fake person created a sophisticated scam to prey on very green artists. I am told the email the fake Victor uses is (firstname.lastname@example.org). This fake person used my music catalog, easily searchable online, added fake facts, and fooled people into believing that he was me - a Grammy nominated producer. How? Part 2 is coming soon. In the meantime, Don't be fooled by a smile, charming voice, a friendly persona, and an offer to help.
