Aspiring rapper Robert Echeverria aka Mr. Caliefro was arrested for pulling a taco scam at a local fast food restaurant which landed him 30 days in prison.
Ever thought of posting your 'cool' scam on YouTube to show others just how 'cool' it is? Well, that may not be a good idea. Robert Echeverria, 32, along with two other friends (both male) thought that it might be funny and 'cool' to upload their "How to Scam Del Taco" to YouTube.
In the taco scam, Robert Echeverria, a reported aspiring rapper and poet who goes by the name of "Mr. Caliefro" pretended to be a CEO named "Robert Kennedy" complaining about his fast-food order. The scam and fake order landed Robert and his two pals ('The Great Bambino' and 'White Noise') two quesadillas with extra chicken, seven tacos, two sodas, a large order of fries and 30 days in jail.
After a viewer who watched the video on YouTube called the police, they (the police) also viewed the video and made the arrest using the video as evidence.
Echeverria pleaded guilty to misdemeanor burglary and got 30 days in jail, three years' probation and was banned for life from Rialto Del Taco, which is located in Rialto, California. The two companions are awaiting trial.
The aspiring filmmakers held up a note on a cardboard crediting the video as a NikelNDime Production at the end of the video after first happily feasting on the scammed $12 worth of tacos and drinks.
