They are called Facebook “friends” aren’t they?
A woman from Perth has learnt a tough lesson about social media and gambling – and taught us one in the meantime.
Never post the barcode of your winning ticket on social media.
The woman, named Chantelle from Perth backed the $100-1 winner Prince Of Penzance in the Melbourne Cup.
Triumphant, she did what you do when you just win $825 — posted a selfie on Facebook.
There she was, joyous, elated and it turns out very very vulnerable to cameras.
“Winner winner chicken dinner” was her excited message alongside the perfectly captured image of her ticket’s barcode.
