This guy tried to scam a lottery company with a fake winning ticket…
I hope he started this as a joke, because no one would believe this.
His post reads:
Hi National Lottery! I bought this scratchcard recently and as you can clearly see i have revealed 3 £250,000 figures in the end column meaning i should be able to start shopping at Waitrose in the near future.
Unfortunately both bar codes on the reverse side have been removed by a small fire. This completely accidental inferno has also damaged the game number on the front side.
I may also add that due to my clumsyness, in a completely seperate incident i have also spilt pen ink on the other identifying number in the game column frown emoticon
Just my bloody luck eh!?
Just to conclude, if you dont mind sending me a direct message to confirm that this is a winner i would be more than happy to pass on my postal address so you can send me my winners cheque.
Yours in honesty and trust,
The lottery had the perfect response:
