This Girl Celebrated Winning $900 On Facebook And Was Made To Instantly Regret It

Just when you thought you could trust your Facebook friends.

Of all the sneaky, savage, underhanded moves we’ve written about over the years, this has to be right up there with the sneakiest of all.

A young lady named Chantelle from Perth in Australia won $900 on a Melbourne Cup horse race this week, and as most people might do, she excitedly shared a photo of herself holding up the winning ticket on Facebook:


This proved to be a humongous mistake however, as one of her Facebook friends used the barcode on display in her selfie to claim the winnings for themselves, meaning Chantelle basically got JACKED for $900, all because she uploaded that photo onto Facebook.

A devastated Chantelle then wrote this status:

To the low life who is obviously my friend on Facebook and used my photo to claim our winnings. You’re a massive dick. You ruined my day.

Ruined your day? How about ruined your LIFE? $900 is a lot of money. I would literally dedicate the remainder of my existence to getting that money back, even if it means kidnapping, tying up, and interrogating the shit out of all my Facebook friends.

Not to worry though, police spoke to Chantelle and apparently have been able to track where the prize money was claimed, so it shouldn’t be too long before it’s returned to its rightful owner. There’s a relief.

Also at the Melbourne Cup, a woman was arrested for hilariously dashing a policeman into a bush after being dared to by one of her mates. Gotta love the Aussies.
