Woman asks world to pay her back for money spent on Powerball tickets
CORDOVA, Tenn. — A woman who claims to have spent all of her money on Powerball tickets is now asking for donations from the public.
According to Yahoo News, Cinnamon Nicole raised more than $800 in just seven hours on her Powerball Reimbursement GoFundMe page.
Nicole claims to have spent all of her money on tickets for the $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, despite the 1 in 292.2 million chances of winning.
It’s not clear how much money Nicole actually spent on the tickets, but when Nicole realized she did not have a winning ticket, she started a GoFundMe page.
“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.”
But Friday morning, her GoFundMe page was shut down. It’s not clear if she shut it down herself or if the crowdfunding site deleted her page.
