Social media was thrown into a frenzy earlier this week when it was alleged that a 27-year-old student from South Africa managed to scam his way into getting a free KFC every day for a year.

It was claimed that the student would arrive at the fast food restaurant in a limousine driven by his friend who worked part-time as a driver.

Wearing a suit, he would then walk straight up to the counter before whipping out an ID card from ‘head office’. 

He would tell the employees that he had been sent from the KFC headquarters for quality check. 

The story was shared on Twitter by a Kenyan journalist, who also revealed that the conman had been arrested for his prank.

The tweet read: "South African man arrested for eating at KFC free for a year by saying head office sent him to taste if they are up to standard."

Since he shared it, the thread became viral. At the time of filing the story, it had already been re-tweeted 3,864 times and had over 7,156 likes.
