Look the part, get the cash

By creative_canberran - 10 June 2013 13

Canberra Times brings word of the latest incident involving one of the ANU’s ressies. Not a trashed function venue or dead seagulls left in beds this time, but a cautionary tale in how not to handle the transfer of large sums of cash, courtesy of Mooseheads. Apparently someone rang up the Moose regarding a preexisting sponsorship deal with Burgmann College’s student association, arranging to collect outstanding cash ($7500) in person. The mysterious individual turns up, dressed in a Burgmann Rugby top and, without a name or a signature, receives the envelope full of cash. The mystery man then disappears with the money, leaving the student association wondering where it is and claiming not to know the mystery man.

So it may not be in the same league as the $140,000 pinched from ANUSA and co, but students got to start their thievin’ somewhere.

What’s Your opinion?

Customary business practice of some at Mooseheads to deal in cash, no questions asked?

This is how some people seem to see funding for private schools working. Just don a rugby top and they’ll give you heaps. No questions asked. 🙂

A bit like the ACT Labor Government getting donations from the Canberra Labor Party owned Labor Clubs and then passing our money on to the ACT Brumbies at Canberra University perhaps?
Certainly no questions asked (or answered).

No security video record of this transaction?

What kind of sponsorship deal is profitable enough for the Moose that they’d hand over $7,500? Genuinely curious.

Cash? Envelope? Really?

+1

Exactly, something is not right here.

I think it’s hilarious. Who really falls for this sort thing?

Actually, I have a nice harbour bridge Mooseheads may wish to purchase…

Agreed. But the person evidently knew the exact nature of the sponsorship deal and the manager was too silly to actually check if they were who they said they were. Funny stuff.

People who work at Mooseheads, evidently.

I must don a Rugby jumper and head around there, asking for a wedge in an envelope.

On second thoughts, that might not be a good idea right now. 🙂

Someone’s been watching Hustle – so much classier than brandishing sharp objects, or things that go bang. I assume there was a compelling reason for cash, rather than cheque, or transfer to an appropriate account.
