Sour Milk: Shanghai 'Milkman' Scams Clients

By Rachel Deason, January 5, 2017

File this to ‘the 1950s called and wants its scam back’: a Shanghai resident has been arrested for posing as a milkman, collecting up to RMB1000 per client and then running off before delivering the boxed milk. The man, surnamed Wang, milked a total of RMB10,000 from his clients before being reprimanded by police.

Wang must have been a fast talker, as police claim he didn’t make an effort to even dress like a milkman. He would instead tell his clients that he was “a long time employee who doesn’t have to wear [a uniform].” How dairy!

Wang primarily targeted elderly people, skimming eight of them since October. Hopefully the victims will be able to moove past this. After all, there's no use crying over shilled milk.
