Local Restaurant Scam

The Buncombe County web site is reporting that scammers have been targeting area restaurants, telling them they need to pay $19.95 each for “hand washing” signs which are required to be posted in restrooms.

An interesting, if not original scam, probably concocted while someone was using the restroom, saw the sign, and got the bright idea.  Fascinating.
