The things people do to get a free night in a hotel

A woman in Fargo is being accused of using the old syringe-in-your-bed trick.

The Fargo Forum reports the woman allegedly tried to get her room for free after claiming she found a syringe in the bed.

What was the tip-off — aside from the fact the cleaning protocol made it extremely unlikely the syringe was left behind — that this was a scam?

“All she wanted was a free night,” the hotel manager said, noting she didn’t express any concern for her safety.

    While the Scandia Hotel is by no means high end, it is right next to sanford hospital, and most often it’s guests are family members of patients in the hospital. I’ve never gotten a bad vibe from that place. I’d tend to believe he was being scammed as well.
