We all know that HR is never boring. But sometimes, it can get downright strange...
One born every minute
You'll be excused for having to read this twice: A man impersonating a police officer called a Billings, Montana business and duped the manager into conducting a strip search of two equally duped female employees.
A real Billings police detective, Sgt. Ross Adams, told the Billings Gazette that a man called the unidentified business on Dec. 26 and convinced the manager to not only conduct the searches but describe them as he went along.
According to Adams, the man began the call by identifying himself as a Billings police detective and asking the manager to describe all the female employees who were working. The man said he was calling because of a woman's complaint that an employee had stolen a coin purse of hers.
Adams said the man told the people at the business that if they did not comply, officers would come to the business, make arrests, and have them undergo strip searches at the police department.
Afterward, employees became suspicious and called police.
"We don't do strip searches," Adams said. If a strip search were conducted, it would be done at the jail and by an officer of the same gender, he added.
