Woman Creates GoFundMe Page To Get Reimbursed For Powerball Tickets
With only three big winners of the $1.6 billion Powerball, there were millions of losers—but one woman has created a GoFundMe page to get reimbursed for her tickets.
As bad as that may sound, I'm still not sure what's worse—the fact that this page was even created, or the fact that people actually donated more than $800 within seven hours.
I should also point out that this is either the best trolling attempt of the year (so far) or the first candidate for most ridiculous GoFundMe page of 2016.
Cinnamon Nicole says that she spent all of her money purchasing Powerball tickets in hopes of winning the big prize, but didn't get the results she was expecting once the numbers were picked.
Ignoring the 1 in 292.2 million odds of winning the $1.6 billion, Nicole still went for broke and, well; ended up broke.
Please help me and my family as we have exausted all of our funds. We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expecting to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.
For their generosity, the Tennessee woman promised to make donors her #MCM (Man Crush Monday) or #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) on social media, which made it seem even more like an attempt to troll the general web.
Even though people actually donated money, others were NOT amused. Kenyatta Gibson had one of the more entertaining comments.
Guuuuuuuuuuurl…….I ‘SWEATERGAAAAAWD’ if I see one person give you one rusty copper penny I will spend ten times what you spent on lottery tickets on PLANE tickets to fly to their humble abode so spoiled in riches that they can afford to make it rain on Sweet Brown like ratchet humans such as you who choose to spend their cash on Remy, Flaming Hot Cheetos, VOSS Water and Powerball , and commence to kicking every single one of their asses!!!
This may be worse than the son who pranked his mother into thinking she won the Powerball.
UPDATE: The GoFundMe Page has since been removed. Hope in humanity is somewhat restored.
