Fake Target Employee Hilariously Trolls Angry Customers
Looks like Target was the, ahem, target of an online joke.
Earlier this week, a man named Mike Melgard created a Facebook page in which he posed as a Target customer service rep, dishing out insults to unsuspecting people. He even had the Target logo as an avatar to make it more believable.
