It seems that just when you've figured out the best scheme to get free merchandise through a celebrity, someone else steals your idea, gets caught, and ruins any chance you might have had. Case in point: Courtney Handel, the twenty-three-year old girl from New Jersey who posed as Jessica Simpson's assistant and amassed over $12,000 in merchandise simply by e-mailing or faxing places and telling them that Simpson was interested in their product line. If it weren't for Handel beating me to this idea, I could be up to my neck in apple-scented shampoo right now.
