Back in November, our ICY HEARTS were briefly thawed by the story of a New York cop who saw a homeless man sitting barefoot in Times Square, and spent $75 to buy him a brand new pair of shoes. And a photo of the scene got 618,000 Facebook likes.
--About two weeks later, our enthusiasm waned after reporters caught up with the homeless guy, 54-year-old Jeffrey Hillman, and he said he felt EXPLOITED, because he didn't get a DIME from all the media attention the story was getting.
--And now, our enthusiasm is GONE and our hearts are back to being icy and black.
--On Sunday, a few "New York Post" reporters followed Jeffrey after he left Times Square . . . and watched him head right back to an apartment. He was counting a huge stack of bills as he walked up.
--When they confronted him, he admitted he ISN'T homeless. He's just a con man who poses as a homeless guy . . . and makes HUNDREDS a day doing it. At maybe $250 a day, 200 days a year, that makes it a $50,000-a-year, TAX-FREE job.
--And as for the shoes he got from the cop . . . Jeffrey admitted he owns at least 30 pairs of shoes and boots.
If you find out your husband's cheating on you, there are two ways you can react. You can curl up into a ball, and cry about how your life is ruined . . . or you can figure out the best way to PUBLICLY HUMILIATE HIM.
--A woman named Jennifer in Greensboro, North Carolina just went with Option B.
--She suspected her husband was cheating, and thanks to a GPS tracker, she was able to take photos of him in the act with a woman named Jessica.
--And her response was . . . to use their joint investment account to BUY A GIANT BILLBOARD, and call him out.
--The billboard says, quote, "Michael. GPS tracker, $250. Nikon Camera with zoom lens, $1,600. Catching my LYING HUSBAND and buying this billboard with our investment account, priceless. Tell Jessica you're moving in! Jennifer."
--Sure, the MasterCard "Priceless" thing has been played out for YEARS . . . but it's still some high quality revenge. There's no word how much the billboard cost.
