Student arrested after eating free KFC for a year by claiming he's from head office
The student said he worked for head office and had to perform taste tests.
A 27-year-old South African student was arrested after his finger nickin' good plan to get free KFC for an entire year backfired.
According to India Today, the man told employees that he was sent from headquarters to do a taste test and ensure that the food was up to the highest standards.
He did this for an entire year and was never caught, until now.
The man was studying at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and his name hasn't been disclosed.
According to the report, every time the man walked into a KFC he did so with a lot of confidence and would tell employees he was sent from KFC headquarters for quality assurance of the food served in the restaurant.
We think that this story could be the next Ocean's Eleven.
Speaking with Xpouzar, a member of staff said: "He was so convincing because he was so confident, and even colleagues from other branches of KFC know him.
"When he came in, he rushed to the kitchen and checked everything, taking notes and then asked for samples of whatever he wanted. He probably worked for KFC before because he knows everything."
Kenyan journalist Teddy Eugene shared the news on his official account and the replies make for interesting reading.
Fowl play, eh?
Take a look.
