Redhead Uses Fake "Ginger Discount Card" To Con Local Businesses
ABERDEEN, Scotland, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- A red-haired Scot has been saving money using a well-made, but obviously fake, "Ginger Discount Card" for over four years.
When Richard Macrae turned 26, a friend gave him a laminated orange card with his picture and personal information below the words "Ginger Discount Card."
Four years later, Macrae, who's grown to resemble a red-headed Guy Fawkes, regularly uses the card to save money on everything from drinks to transportation.
"I ask if they do the ginger discount, and when they look confused I slide across my card," the 30-year-old explained to The Scotsman. "Usually everyone gets the humor behind it, some people look confused and wonder if it's real which is always a laugh, but most get the joke. I've saved a couple of hundred pounds maybe, with money off booze, taxis, food and club entries -- over four years it fairly builds up."
