Nakins give you money

Recommended Posts

San Francisco PD have caught a crook using an ingeniously low-fi method to rip people off ATMs: napkins.

 

A merchant on Divisadero Street tipped the cops off after he spied the crook stuffing napkins up into ATM cash dispenser slots. When people tried to take cash out, it would get stuck up behind the napkins. After they walked away frustrated, the guy just strolled over, reached up into the slot, and dislodged the napkins, and walked away with their cash.

 

According to the police, the man who lived in the Tenderloin district of San Fran, is a serial napkin stuffer. He was charged with burglary. After they arrested him, cops found another ATM stuffed with napkins close by.

"They say it's the number of napkins I stuffed, I say it's the principle. "

Banks usually refund your money if it doesn't come out of the atm. Even if a bum is scamming it.

This means the banks lose money, which means they lift fees, charges, etc. that you then have to pay!

So really he is ripping YOU off.

You should be umad.

I'm sitting less than two blocks from Divisadero as I type this....maybe I should take a walk down there and see if the cops missed anything, it's a pretty short street.
