One of the craziest (and clever) things I have ever heard

    One of the craziest (and clever) things I have ever heard

    Thread Starter 

    So a woman takes her family to a nice seafood restaurant here in South Florida. She places her purse on the back of her chair when she sits down. When she reaches for it after the meal to pay it is gone. She and the restaurant staff look all over and it is nowhere to be found. Another family member pays and she goes home after reporting it to the police. A few days later she gets a phone call from the restaurant inviting them all back with apologies and a reservation at the restaurant's expense. They all return, check in with their reservation and have a very nice meal. At the end of the meal she is given a check for the meal. She calls the manager over and reminds him of the phone call. The manager says he never called her. She expresses her anger and is then stuck with another bill. She pays and returns home to find her house robbed! Some elaborate scam, eh?

    It sounds pretty amazing but I couldn't find any reference to it online.  Sure it's not an urban legend?  Or was it in a local newspaper?

    Hello, everyone.

    The story is horrible. I took interest in this thread after reading the title "One of the craziest (and clever) things I have ever heard." I recently witnessed something quite "clever" yet it is "crazy" because of the circumstances.

    Recently, a man and his wife were convicted of embezzling over $60 million from eight investors. The couple denied wrong doing and claim innocence to this day. The couple could have been sentenced to 30 years prison time, if a jury had found them guilty of the scam. They pleaded the case to nine years incarceration. The "clever" yet "crazy" comment came post in-court plea. The media asked them why they would plea to nine years, yet continue to claim innocence? The husband replied "I am not going to trust my life in the hands of 12 people who are to stupid to get out of jury duty." happy.gif

    Obviously a law abiding citizen frowns at the comment and understands jury duty to be ones obligation to american Justice, democracy and judicial system, but to those of us who can not afford missing two weeks of work to attend court, the statement rings very true. The state of PA pays $12 per "jury day." This reply may be controversial, but to those of us who not even chance missing one day of work, the situation may ring true. can

    Whatever their comment, I'm sure they took the plea deal because they knew they were guilty as charged whether they admitted it or not and 9 years is a lot better than a possible 30.

    Hednici/all,

    Many will disagree, but had they embezzled and somehow hidden the money nine years may not be so bad. Officials recovered under 11 million. That makes 50 million unaccounted for. Many are so unhappy with their jobs, nine years in a cell then an entire life of super-wealth may be considered "reasonable."
