Open Letter of Apology to Phil Hill aka "UFO Phil"

In August of 2008 until early 2009, I was an intern for "UFO Phil" Hill at his home studio in Spokane Washington.

We had a falling out after I revealed sensitive personal information about him on the web and to the local newspaper.

On more than one occasion, I posed as UFO Phil over the telephone, on Facebook, and even one time in person. At least one of the fake "interviews" I gave ended up being published.

In the interviews, I told them I was an actor playing the role of UFO Phil.

This seemed to play into their hands perfectly because there had already been speculation around the internet that UFO Phil might be just an elaborate hoax.

I lied because I was angry and hurt at the time.

I can tell you from first hand experience UFO Phil is a REAL GUY and his REAL NAME is PHIL HILL. And, he sincerely believes in the UFO Phenomena he espouses.

Mr Hill was born in Roswell, New Mexico.

I know this for a fact because I had access to his personal documents during my time working for him. I saw the birth certificate and the Social Security Card.

I apologize from the bottom of my heart to Phil and anyone else affected by my actions.
