Some people use their powers of deception to gain rank or money, and some just use it for a bite of that Kentucky goodness. A 27-year-old man from South Africa was arrested recently for eating at KFC for free for a year.

The news was brought to light by Kenyan journalist Teddy Eugene on Twitter. 

This man would reportedly tell employees that he was sent from the KFC headquarters for a quality check on the food being served.

He would repeat the same story at different KFC outlets, and managed to eat free every day for a whole year.

If the cops hadn't caught up with him, his diet would have! 

The man's name has not been revealed, but he was a student of the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Apparently, all he had to do was act confident (and never order the vegan wings). 


While KFC probably wasn't too happy, the folks on Twitter lauded this unsung hero, this scam artist par excellence, this chicken retrieval expert. 

It appears the Hamburglar's got some stiff competition!
