We all have done some extraordinary things in our life!
But this 27-year-old fella did was quite close to genius- only it just missed the mark because he has now been arrested and will show up in court after allegedly scamming his approach to eating free at KFC for a whole year.
The South African man is reported to have told workers of the fast food chain that he had been sent from the KFC head office for quality checks to ensure 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 for that the anonymous man conveyed an ID card from ‘head office’ and would dress extremely smart- even arriving in a limousine. Credit where credit’s due, that’s dedication.
He should be knighted, not arrested!! The guy is a freaking LEGEND!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

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’.
