Almost had my name in the credits of a movie!

So here is the latest thing I have been trying to pull of.  You will see that in the end it was not successful, but it might have been if I had stayed with it.  I decided to pull the plug because they were asking too many questions.  Please note that all names have been changed to protect all involved.  As you can imagine, some people would lose their jobs if it were known that they almost allowed this to happen.  So here it goes:

    Jane,

    I had almost forgot, I really have to have a special thanks to [MY REAL NAME] added to the credits for The [BIG PRODUCTION MOVIE TITLE HERE] movies.  Please get back to me and let me know that this is done.

    Brian

    Dear Brian,

    With regard to the request below, I believe Cindy Smith is handling the credits for THE [BIG PRODUCTION MOVIE TITLE HERE] films, perhaps she can assist?  (not my area of expertise)   I’ve copied her in, to address with you directly.

    Hope you are well-

    All the best,
    Jane Johnson

    Hi Brian - [BIG MOVIE PRODUCTION COMPANY] doesn't credit individuals in the "thanks" section of the end crawl, however please let me know what [MY REAL NAME] did and maybe he can be placed in the crawl.  Thanks, Cindy

    Thanks Cindy for getting back to me.  [MY REAL NAME] has been working as an intern assistant for me and has been coordinating all of my emails regarding this project.  I just wanted to make sure he gets a proper credit in the crawl.

    Do you have an assistant already?  If so, maybe we can credit [MY REAL NAME] under your assistant's name.

    I changed my mind, let's not put [MY REAL NAME] in the crawl.
So, I should probably explain a little bit about my previous post concerning the movie producer's emails.  I have been getting them for a long time now and I get them for almost everything (iTunes, movie production notes, script pitches, something about the transportation system in London, and even an official invitation to the Golden Globes post-show celebration).  At first I would politely forward them along, noting at the top of each one that he needs to verify his email with whoever sent them.  But, they kept coming, so I sent him an email one day stating that I would no longer be forwarding them to him, but instead I would be deleting them without notifying him.  He acknowledged it, yet I still continue to receive these emails and most look very important.  So what should I do? 

Start trolling them.  I will try to post on here my exploits as I continue with this social engineering project and see what I can get out of it for my troubles.  Wish me luck!
