If you're the clerk at a store you're trying to rip off, the first rule of staging an armed robbery is don't tell police it's fake. Second rule of staging an armed robbery: DON'T TELL POLICE IT'S FAKE!

Lincoln Knight, a clerk at a PLS Pay Day Loan Store near 43rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road, apparently didn't get the memo.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, Knight conspired with her boyfriend, Jeremy Parker and his mother Simone Parker, to stage an armed robbery at the store where Knight works.

The payoff: $37,000.

Phoenix police got a call about 4:30 a.m. Sunday about a robbery at the loan store. When they arrived on the scene, they found Knight -- and she was acting strange.

Phoenix Sergeant Trent Crump says Knight made several attempts to leave the store during the investigation, and lied about her address to officers.

After a little probing, Knight came clean.

She told police she had conspired with Parker and his mother to rob the store. She said Simone Parker acted as the getaway driver as her son robbed the store.

All three suspects were arrested and admitted to concocting the plan. Each were booked for armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and theft.

Payday loan is a temporary personal loan which is paid against the income of the borrower. The income for the immediate next month is treated as collateral for reimbursement.

Great payday loan tips, I couldn’t agree more that payday loans aren’t the answer to long term money management but there are times when a payday loan makes perfect sense.payday loans can be obtained through many online lenders very easily. Whilst this is the case there can still be drawbacks that have to be thought about before entering into any contracts. You will find that you may have to pay a high application fee and that you may be charged high interest rates.

Practically speaking loaning is not really a good way of having the money you need to buy things but because of economic crisis that most of the country is suffering it's essential to assist us in our financial needs.
