This Woman Spent Her Life Savings On Powerball Tickets And Made A GoFundMe Page To Get Her Money Back

As kids, we’re taught that you never know unless you try, but this Tennessee woman took things to the extreme and tried super hard to win the Powerball, even though the whole thing’s based on luck and she had a better chance of being killed by a rogue vending machine than winning.

With nothing but hope and her faulty judgement, Cinnamon Nicole allegedly spent her entire life savings buying up all the Powerball tickets she could afford. But the Cordova resident ended up a broke loser when none of her lucky numbers matched Wednesday’s $1.6 billion Powerball numbers.

So what’s a penniless woman to do when she’s still all filled with hope but not a hint of common sense? Create a GoFundMe page, get donations and “spend another fortune trying to hit it big again.” That’s what Nicole did before GoFundMe decided they weren’t going to stand idly by while she makes a mockery of the crowdfunding site and shut her Powerball Reimbursement page down.

Here’s the gut-wrenching message that raised the woman $800 before getting deleted.

Please help me and my family as we have exhausted 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.

Just another ridiculous GoFundMe page to add to the record. (Via Vibe)
