How creepy is this?

How creepy is this? Man poses as sportswriter for USAToday and/or SI For Kids who wants to interview female collegiate athletes. Some he only gets as far as the phone, one met up with him with her family acting as Scooby Gang. Police say he hasn't done anything to merit charges. Harmless person with mental disorder or person perfecting routine before he escalates?

wow. that's quite a story. i can't believe they haven't arrested the guy. the story says:

"University police were notified, but by the time they got to the hotel, they said, he had checked out, paying with a credit card issued to Karl Morgan Sr., a deceased Florida resident. "

isn't using the credit card of a deceased person a crime?

the whole thing reminds me of this man and that guy who scammed his way onto the space shuttle and into hospital ER rooms (as a doctor)--what the hell was his name again?
