Fraud-o-matic is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.

This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.

What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.

It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.

The  “like not other” tagline, the things falling cityscape and the soft music makes me thing of the Bravia adverts here.

ABrooklynman is accused of donning a wig, nail polish and dresses to impersonate his dead mom and collect $115,000 in Social Security and rent subsidies.

For six years,Thomas Prusik-Parkinhoodwinked a stunning array of government agencies with his elaborate charade – using a cane, heavy makeup, fake ID and a phony “nephew,” law enforcement sources said.
