Either the hotel is just that stupid or this guy is a real good scammer. According to the New York Post, a man named Clayton Jacobs was able to live in the trendy Mondrian hotel in NY for free for three months under the alias "Biggie Smalls."

Nobody was able to pick up on his name, which is shocking:
Accused fraudster Clayton Jacobs, 48, of Florida allegedly racked up more than $47,000 in bills at the 189-room Park Avenue South hotel, where rooms start at $200 a night while the bar peddles $19 cocktails.

Using the name of the late rapper also known as Notorious B.I.G., Jacobs’ high-life came crashing down only when Amex started denying his credit-card charges after three months, the suit says.

A waitress told The Post on Sunday that she recalled seeing a “Biggie Smalls” on a list of hotel guests but didn’t make the connection to the late legendary rapper.

When she learned Jacobs allegedly scammed her employer, she was shocked.

“Oh my god, I had no idea,” she said. “How does someone get away with that?”
Hotel staffers need to smarten up.
