A South-African man has been arrested for eating at KFC free for a year by lying that the head office sent him to taste if the food is up to standard.
The unidentified man from the KwaZulu Natal University told staff at the fried chicken shops around Durban that he was from headquarters and was testing standards.
According to reports, the young man always walks into the restaurant convincing the workers that he was a representative from the KFC headquarters to confirm the quality of the meals they serve. Give credit where credit’s due, that’s dedication.
According to CBS, the man’s friend is a part-time limo driver and seemed to be a pretty good alleged accomplice for pretending you’re a man with status, by the sound of things.
He was so convincing that it took KFC staff nearly two years to realize that he was stealing food.
An employee said that when he came in to the kitchen, he checked everything, taking notes.
The news of his con went viral after Kenyan journalist Teddy Eugene shared it on his official Twitter handle. “He probably worked for KFC before because he knows everything”, said one of the employees. At the time of writing, it had already been retweeted 20,000 times and had over 44,000 likes.
The Eleventh member of Wu-Tang also had this to say; “Not all heroes wear capes“.
Lee Kirichu stated; “He is a legend and is now very experienced taster”.
A nearly flawless plan, until he inevitably got caught.
