A longtime soap vet is alerting fans to a horrifying online scam targeted at him. Worse, the con artist is using his deceased son as part of the criminal acts.
Popular soap opera star Kristoff St. John (Neil, The Young and the Restless) took to social media and warned fans of the appalling scam.
Apparently, a con artist is using his name and his story to ask for money from fans. The worst part is the criminal is using his son Julian in the con. Last week, the actor’s co-star, Daniel Goddard, also alerted fans to a fake account asking for money from fans.
Read the post below to see how you can help Kristoff St. John take down the scammers. One thing is certain, be weary of soap stars asking you for money. As evidenced by St. John and Goddard, real stars will never ask you for money!
