One simply doesn’t say no to free food. After all, food is a necessity we must attend to. So when the opportunity arises to have more food, grabbing it while it’s hot can be understandable. That’s what one genius troublemaker did in South Africa: he fooled KFC by telling the staff he’s from the KFC headquarters and got away with free chicken meals for a year.

An anonymous 27-year-old South African man was recently arrested after taking advantage of KFC employees and helping himself to free chicken meals for a whole year. Apparently, he told them that he was sent by KFC headquarters– something the employees believed in, hence they complied with his requests for food under the pretense of quality check.

The said man was actually a student from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He basically swaggered to the nearest KFC branches and told people that he was there for quality assurance checks and was sent by KFC headquarters.

Of course, he also made the illusion more intricate by dressing smartly, arriving in a borrowed limousine, and having a fake ID card from KFC headquarters.

“When he arrived we would all try to act our best so that we didn’t piss off the man from head office – 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,” says a staff member.

He did this for a year and did not get caught… until now. The anonymous man is now awaiting trial in court for his heroism crimes.
