Man gives away BMW at Hooters

This took place in the U.S., not Switzerland, but the Daily Mail has picked up the story so I think it's fair game for the EF. I'm posting here instead of "International News" because I just think it's a funny story and after the story about the train accident that killed a U.S. tourist, EFers NEED a good laugh.

Besides, there are Hooters in Switzerland and some enterprising EFers may want to use this scam to con a Hooters patron out of HIS car!

Well, what did you THINK would happen???

Re: Man gives away BMW at Hooters

maybe they were so caught up by the honeymoon/marriage that they forgot to return it?

Re: Man gives away BMW at Hooters

It's also possible that the car wasn't stolen at all, and this is an insurance scam. But if it is true, what this guy did was incredibly dumb. Kindhearted, but dumb.

Re: Man gives away BMW at Hooters

And this is noteworthy because? I have seen bicycles worth more the car was only valued at 6000CHF and its 11 years old!

Re: Man gives away BMW at Hooters

maybe the guy was Swiss and realized that it would be cheaper to give it away than to have to pay for it to be towed away...?

Re: Man gives away BMW at Hooters

I wouldn't wanna be given this car for free (and I don't have one at all ) - but the engagement ring I'd have taken.
Wonder who that one was meant to be for... one of the Hooters "ladies"?
