KFC Cashier Scammed Out Of Money

Cookeville police are investigating a new twist on an old scam. It's called the quick change scam, in which someone keeps asking for different variations in change from cashiers in order to confuse them and, ultimately, cheat them. The most recent incident was reported at the KFC where a man initially told an employee that she had given him back too much change. In the confusing exchange of money that followed, police say the man was able to walk away with $350 from the register. The suspect was described as a black male, with a white beard, about five-feet-five-inches tall, in his mid-40s to early 50s. The con happened just after 6 pm Sunday. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department.
