Life imitates Ameriquest ad

AmeriquestRemember that funny Ameriquest spot that showed a guy talking on a cell phone in a store and saying “You’re being robbed” really loudly? So everyone thinks he’s robbing the store, and he ends up getting clocked on the head. Ha ha ha … gulp. It happened for real in Virginia, the AP reports. A woman is suspected of robbing four Wachovia banks while talking on her cell phone. She was arrested yesterday by the FBI after an agent spotted a car with her plates on it. Investigators weren’t sure whether she was actually talking to someone while she demanded cash or if it was just a cover, an FBI spokesperson said. Now we just hope the Ameriquest cat commercial doesn’t come true as well.
