Felicia Fox Scumbag Alert

(CINCINNATI, OH) -- Scumbags in Ohio - Who Would've Thought? Understand this - the last thing in the world I want is to bring attention to the scumbags at "Club Babylon" in Austintown, Ohio (near Youngstown in NE Ohio). However, if I don't say something about it (and therefore publicize them inadvertently) then, like the cockroaches they are, they'll just keep doing what they're doing.
I was in Youngstown a month or so ago, as one of the guests of honor at a Horror film convention there (DarkKarnival.com). A few weeks after my appearance, fans in the area began emailing me, asking me when I was going to be appearing at Club Babylon in Austintown. I wrote back, asking them what they were talking about -- nothing was scheduled, which I confirmed after a phone call to my booking agent. That's when I learned that this club, which I've never been in or had any contact with, was continually running my photo in the "Youngstown Vindicator" with the caption that I was "Coming Soon" to their club.
Tim called the club, and he spoke to a manager, Mark. Mark insisted that my fans were mistaken; no such ad was running, and that he'd never heard my name before. Tim thanked him for his time, then hung up.
The emails from Youngstown fans continued.
Last night, Tim called the club again, posing as a customer at my insistence. A young lady answered, and he asked about "The girl who's in your ad in the newspaper... When is she appearing at your club?"
Door Girl: "Uh... she could be here next month, or the month after... we're not sure. It depends on how you define 'coming soon'."
Tim: "I see. Can I speak to a manager, please?"
Door Girl: "Uh... they're busy right now. Can I ask who's calling?"
Tim: "Yes... The woman in the ad is Felicia Fox, and you guys are advertising her as coming soon to your club, when she's not. I need to speak to a manager immediately."
"Ed" comes to the phone. He's a bouncer, I think -- way too dumb to be a manager, according to Tim (although at this place, who can tell?). Ed is insulting and abusive, shouts and threats are exchanged, blah blah blah. I put in a call to my attorney, Major Kneecapper Stephen Klein, who begins drafting cease and desist letters.
Why am I telling you all this?
Folks, even in your own backyard, there are scumbags and liars, who are waiting to take advantage of all Your hard work, who are waiting to cheat Your fans and ruin Your good name. Be aware...
I'm thinking of making a free appearance at club in Youngstown now, one of their competitors, just so I can see and thank all my fans, and ruin the business at "Club Babylon" for a few days.
Phone calls from any of you to the club in my support would be very much appreciated. The phone number there is 330-793-5333 and their email address is Babylon@ZoomInternet.net.
