Free KFC food for 12 mths gets you Arrested

KZN man arrested for eating at KFC free for a year by saying head office sent him to taste if they are up to standard.

We've all got a mate who's gone back around the drive-thru, claiming an item has been 'missed' from their order even though it's most definitely right in front of them - only be met with a polite apology before receiving a substitute for said 'missing' item (and sometimes an extra portion of chips to soften the blow).


But what one 27-year-old fella did was quite close to genius - only it just missed the mark because he has now been arrested and will appear in court after allegedly scamming his way to eating free at KFC for an entire year.

The South African man is reported to have told employees of the fast food chain that he had been sent from the KFC headquarters for quality checks to make sure the chicken was up to standard.

According to India Today, the University of KwaZulu-Natal student would walk in with confidence and tell staff he was there for quality assurance checks of the food served in the restaurant.

It has also been reported that the unnamed man carried an ID card from 'head office' and would dress very smart - even arriving in a limousine. Credit where credit's due, that's dedication.

Well, according to Xpouzar, 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.

A member of staff from KFC told Xpouzar: "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."

The story was shared on Twitter by a Kenyan journalist who tweets from an account called 'The African Voice'.

The post currently has 22,000 likes and 10,000 retweets with people dubbing the KFC impostor a 'hero'.

One person commented: "They should give that man that job already." Another added: "Not all heroes wear capes.."

A third person wrote: "He is a legend and is now very experienced taster. KFC should employ him."

An almost flawless plan... until he inevitably got caught. Unlucky, mate.

Staff would always serve the man as he had a fake ID badge and turned up in a suit saying he needed to test the chicken to make sure it was up to standard.
