Train travel is incredibly expensive. So you have to give credit to the man that almost got away with paying only a daily fee of £7.20 over five years for his journey from East Sussex into London Bridge.
Here's how he did it.
First, he boarded the train at Stonegate station, which conveniently doesn't have a barrier.
Then he avoided the ticket inspectors on the train. No-one's quite sure how he managed this.
And finally he managed to sneak past manned terminals when he got to London Bridge station.
He first stoked suspicion last autumn when an inspector at Cannon Street station noticed that the man was charged £7.20, the fee given to any customer who taps out without having first tapped in.
An investigation by Southeastern trains found the man had stopped buying a season ticket for his journey in 2008, raising alarms that he had been doing this for five years.
In an out-of-court settlement, the man, reported to be a hedge-fund manager, paid £42,550 in unpaid fares and £450 in legal fees, which is £20,000 more than if he had continued to buy season tickets.
