Someone's Pranking People In North Carolina With Fake Parking Tickets

Officials in Asheville, North Carolina are warning people about an unusual problem the city seems to be having.

According to city's Transportation Director Ken Putnam, an unknown person has been issuing made-up parking tickets.

Two fake citations were found on March 4—one by a recipient and another by a parking officer.

The logo of Asheville city appears on them just as it does in the official citations; however, the bogus tickets display a penalty fee of $100—ten times the standard amount.

They also include a QR code which reportedly leads to Rick Astley's video for his song Never Gonna Give You Up; this prank is commonly known as rickrolling.

If caught, the culprit could face a littering charge.
