Local business scammed by Santa

Owners at Eco Chic in South Fargo say a man came into their boutique a week and a half ago, soliciting his services to dress up as Santa and entertain the kids for an hour.

They agreed and paid him 25 dollars, but he never showed up Saturday.

"To stand here and have had a dozen kids looking at you, wondering where Santa is, that's not really a fun job to have to be the one to disappoint everybody and say, sorry kids, Santa's not showing today."

"My feelings were sad because Santa didn't come."

Police don't believe they'll press criminal charges against the man.
