On social media, one individual boasted that they were able to purchase a new sports car for merely $30,000 in cash. However, people soon discovered an interesting detail by looking closer at the image he shared of his recent acquisition from the dealership. Remaining anonymous, this person is known to reside in Florida – where bad deals are continuously made by speedsters looking to swiftly drive off in their brand-new vehicle straight away.
On June 11, 2022, a social media user shared an image of himself beaming from the driver’s seat of his freshly purchased sports car at a Florida dealership. He proudly displayed his substantial wad of cash in front of the vehicle as he grinned at the camera. Unfortunately, people soon began to point out that there was likely more going on behind the scenes than what this photo revealed; it seemed like this man had not been entirely forthcoming about how he got hold of such an impressive ride!
In the image, one can observe a man inadvertently displaying his Florida Access card – which aids those with limited income in purchasing groceries – on his lap. His wallet is wide open and anyone can see it, thus indicating how poverty has made him careless about privacy matters.
Although the sports car purchaser may have been able to buy a new vehicle from a Florida dealership, he seemingly isn’t equipped with the financial resources needed to purchase even everyday groceries.
Shocked by the man’s behavior of buying a pricey new car while allegedly scamming Florida welfare benefits, many are left to question how it is possible for him to afford such luxuries without going into debt when he apparently still needs assistance from the Republican state just to purchase groceries.
On Facebook, people fiercely criticized the unknown Florida car buyer for duping the state’s welfare system of thousands of dollars.
“I bet when the Florida welfare office sees this, he won’t be on welfare for long!” one person wrote. “And he should have to pay back every dime he collected! Plus, about 35 years in the federal pen!”
“It’s not that he’s stealing from you and me that pisses me off the most,” another person said. “He’s stealing from people who actually need help.”
A voice of reason called for social media not to rush its judgment on the suspected fraudster.
“[Let’s] not judge him until we find out where he got the money and if he qualified for that card,” one person said. “For all, we know he might have won at the casino or something.”
