Most of us love gobbling down tasty food from KFC. This 27-year-old student from South Africa is no different. However, instead of going to an outlet and buying KFC, he employed an “ingenious” way. He scammed his way into eating free food for a year.

A Kenyan journalist, Teddy Eugene, shared the news of the con and the person’s eventual arrest on Twitter on May 12. The name of the man is not disclosed, but he is identified as a student of the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.

Metro reports that the man would often arrive at KFC outlets wearing a suit and riding in a limo. He would confidently claim that he came from KFC headquarters to check the quality of the product served in that particular outlet and “if they are up to standard”. Then he would check the kitchen and ask for a free meal. This way he ended up bagging hundreds of free meals from different KFC outlets across South Africa.

Netizens didn’t take long to shower comments on the post. Till now, the post has gathered more than 48,000 “likes” and 21,000 retweets. Though the guy was arrested, excited netizens hailed him as a “genius”. There were even those Twitter users who called him a “legend”, while others took hilarious digs at the entire incident. Check out some of the comments:
