I'm Jeff Maysh, crime journalist. AMA about my story about how an ex-cop rigged the McDonald's Monopoly game
Hi Reddit! I'm Jeff Maysh, a British-American writer based in LA. I investigate unusual cases of crime, robbery, and fraud. My non-fiction writing has appeared in The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, The Guardian, Playboy, the Smithsonian, and many other titles. I've profiled bank robbers, spies, smugglers, con artists, and gangsters, and my article "The Wedding Sting," about a fake wedding thrown by undercover Michigan cops, is currently in development with Paramount Pictures. Eight of my articles have been "optioned" by Hollywood studios including Netflix and Fox. My writing has been anthologized in The Atlantic’s “100 Exceptional Works of Journalism” and “Best American Sports Writing 2017.”
Most recently, I wrote this long-form story for The Daily Beast about how an ex-cop living in Atlanta managed to rig McDonald's insanely popular Monopoly game, stealing millions over 12 years. AMA anything about this wild story.
I'll be online starting at 1:30 pm EST. Proof.
