Florida Man Didn’t Play the Part of a Dunkin’ Donuts Auditor Too Well

When impersonating an auditor, there are certain distinguishing features and mannerisms that you must employ to successfully dupe your mark. A person rocking banal business casual threads, schlepping a backpack, wearing sensible spectacles, and a tidy haircut works in way of appearance. As far as behavior is concerned, generally speaking, you should always try to refrain from exhibiting too much personality and communication should be a notch or two above Neanderthal. And lastly, you have to stay composed. Auditors are poised individuals, so you should come across as a steadfast corporate professional who has a job to do in a professional manner and GTFO. This, on the other hand. This is what you don't do:
