A Crispy Type Of Ransom

A group of Chinese students manipulated a glitch in the Kentucky Fried Chicken menu which allowed them to receive nearly $30,000 worth of chicken for free. I mean, KFC is pretty good, but seriously, who steals $30,000 worth of chicken?

The Chinese students who scored a five-finger-lickin’ discount at Kentucky Fried Chicken — for a total of $31,000 worth of food — are going to prison.

Their scam took place in 2018 after one of them discovered a glitch on KFC’s online order platform, allowing them access to an endless supply of fried chicken.

The five college con artists involved in the grift were handed down a range of sentences by the People’s Court of Xuhui District in Shanghai, from 13 to 30 months, according to Daily Mail and recent Chinese-language reports, with fines set between $150 (1,000 yuan) and $900 (6,000 yuan).

So their chickens have come home to roost. I’ll bet these kids aren’t clucking anymore, especially since those meals were the last breasts they are going to see for a while.
