NEW YORK — A woman who claims to have spent all her money on Powerball tickets asked for donations from the public by setting up a GoFundMe page.
According to Yahoo News, the woman named Cinnamon Nicole, raised more than $800 in just seven hours on her Powerball Reimbursement GoFundMe page.
Nicole says she blew all her money in an unsuccessful attempt to win the $1.6 billion, according to the GoFundMe page description.
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.
By Friday morning, Nicole’s GoFundMe page was shut down. It’s not clear if she shut it down herself or if the site deleted her page.
