Goodbye Mum

A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.

 

She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."

He answered, "That's okay."

"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mum' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."

She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mum."

The little old lady waved and smiled back at him..

Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries.

"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk..

"
How come so much? I only bought 5 items."

The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd be paying for her things, too."

What does a fraudster look like?

As this joke shows us, a fraudster comes in all shapes and sizes. The worst thing about fraudsters is that they look like the rest of us.

In business we continually meet people who look like genuine customers, only to find in time that they have ripped us off.

So forget the "name" and "look" of the customer which asks to buy from you. As the joke illustrate, always check their creditability first before granting them credit.
