Mark Hamill is protecting fans from fake signed 'Star Wars' merchandise on Twitter
Fans have been sending the actor who plays Luke Skywalker photos of signed memorabilia, asking about their authenticity, and he's individually verifying or refuting the signatures.
On Saturday, December 26, he verified a fan's question.
With so many forgeries out there, I'm happy to tell you that this one is REAL. Enjoy! https://t.co/UhayldDJlw- Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) December 27, 2015
But on the 27th, he let a fan know that fake signatures are all too common.
He apologized to fans who have spent money on fraudulent items and urged them to look at real copies to learn how to confirm his signature on their own. When asked why he wasn't tired of responding to people, he said, "Because I owe it to all true fans to protect them from being victimized by dishonest dealers!"
Below is a series of some of his tweets:
He finished responding to folks saying he would instead "like" a tweet if the signed item was real.
Both REAL. Maybe I'll just "like" the real ones rather than boring everyone w/ endless tweets over authenticity, OK? https://t.co/lstgojuJVq- Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) December 28, 2015
