Will You Have Fries With That?

What Happened To Checks And Balances?

Police in three western Pennsylvania towns are looking for a man who pretends to be a basketball coach and scams McDonald's restaurants out of food and money using bad checks. Police say the man drives up in a school-type bus and enters the restaurants ordering about $50 of food for his "team". The man then pays with a $150 check that appears to be from a school district and takes his food and his change, in cash. The stores learned they were scammed when the checks bounced.

FOOTNOTE: Just a ball-park figure.

Cue McD's banning all payments by cheque /check.
From schools or baseball teams. The losers? The schools and baseball teams. Nice guy huh?

One guy eating $50-worth of McDonald's can't be too hard to identify! I hope they catch him at the nearest weigh station.

I'd like the story even better, if only he had pulled up to McDonald's in a big Mack truck.

Great footnote!

Check the drug stores for a man fitting that description buying heartburn medication.

I feel sorry for him. Sounds like he's stealing just enough money to get buy, and probably getting dinner for his family in the meantime. Maybe not. But that's my take.

I'm sure McDonald's can sustain the losses.

That guy came up with quite a scam! He'll get caught if he doesn't change his ways.
