UPDATE: More reports of mystery man (men?) passing out money to workers, customers in Fall River



A mystery man has been putting smiles on fast-food workers faces in Fall River…and even a few customers.

According to several reports, an unknown man has passed out $100 bills at multiple spots in the city.

Vanessa Bly, who works at D’Angelo Grilled Sandwiches at 16 William S. Canning Blvd, described her experience with the mystery man.

“I thought he had come in with a customer that was ahead of him because they were standing kind of close, but he wasn’t. I was actually nervous because it’s strange to have some random person asking if it was just my coworker and myself working, and if not, how many others were here. I told him 4 of us, and he reached in his pocket, took out a wad of cash, counted out 4 $100 bills, placed it behind my plexiglass and said he wanted everyone of us to get one, he would be watching and to have a good day. He was wearing a red hoodie, nothing fancy.”

Bly is looking to find out who the mystery man is.

She also said that she knows of at least one other fast-food restaurant that he stopped at.

“He went as far as Papa Gino’s where (my friend) works.”

At Wendy’s he reportedly gave all of the workers a $100 bill and thanked them for coming to work, then gave two customers a $100 bill each and thanked them for their patience while he rewarded the workers.

One person reported that he walked into a Fall River McDonalds, but the general manager would not allow the workers to accept the money.

UPDATE: Fall River Reporter was also told by multiple people that the mystery man also stopped at Stop and Shop on Rodman Street. One of the lucky customers, Lexi, stated that he saw her family and at first handed them $100 but when he saw a second baby, he gave them another $100.

Similar incidents have been reported concerning The Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Five Guys, and Supercuts.

A bystander, Ashley, told Fall River Reporter that she saw the mystery man get into a blue Subaru. We have also been told two different descriptions of the man, so it is possible that it is not a mystery man, but mystery men.
