The mysterious high-tipper who has left $1,000 tips in restaurants in San Francisco and other cities has been identified, according to a report in the New York Post. A waiter at a Bo's Kitchen in New York City, who was the beneficiary of a $1,000 tip, said the customer was former PayPal Vice President Jack Selby.

In the past two months the tipper stopped by at least two San Francisco restaurants signing the bills @tipsforjesus. There's also an Instagram page showing photos of the generous receipts.

On Nov. 19, a $1,500 tip was left on a $468 bill at Harris' Steakhouse at 2100 Van Ness Ave.

A $1,000 tip was also left to a waiter at Tacolicious at 2031 Chestnut St., and the receipt was posted online on Oct. 9.
