|$724 For Two Beeers
Paying money to see the 2019 Miami Dolphins play football
is already a giant rip-off, but one fan was scammed beyond
belief during a recent game. That fan checked his bank
account after buying two beers at the game and discovered
he had been charged a whopping total of $724.
The beer vendor swiped the fan's credit card using a personal
card reader, not the device that Hard Rock Stadium provides
to vendors.Soon after the transaction was processed, the fan
was alerted to the exorbitant charge, which came attached
with the vendor's name.
That vendor, 33-year-old Nathaniel Collier, worked for
Rocket Man -- a subcontracting company that places
vendors at sporting events and concerts -- and was not an
employee of the Dolphins or Hard Rock Stadium. After the
fleeced fan alerted authorities, Collier was promptly arrested
by police and fired by Rocket Man. Safe to say it wasn't
exactly the crime of the century from a mastermind.
Collier, who had been an employee of Rocket Man for over a
year, now faces charges of grand theft and using a skimming
device. As for the fan, they received a full refund for the
purchase -- meaning they ultimately got two stadium beers
for free, which isn't the worst deal in the world!
Spotted Cows Spotted at Spotted Cow
A herd of spotted cows busted out of their corral recently
and traveled a mile and a half before arriving at the brewery
that manufactures the uber-popular, only-sold-in-Wisconsin
Spotted Cow beer. Spotted Cow beer, featuring a label of a
cute black and white cow leaping for joy over an outline of
Wisconsin, is New Glarus Brewing's No. 1 seller. The ale is
sold only in the state but many visitors stock up when leaving.
