Redhead Uses Fake "Ginger Discount Card" To Con Local Businesses

If they're dumb enough to accept it, more power to him.
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."
