Fraud Victim Writes Hilariously Sassy Letter To Scammer Who Broke Into His PayPal

When one man's PayPal was broken into, he decided to say his two pence to the hacker in a hilariously sassy letter.

Loading…

Huw Evans, 23, was enjoying a night at his local pub with a pal when he was surprised to receive a message from the online payment system thanking him for his 'purchase'.

PayPal quickly realised the purchase wasn't made by Huw, and sent him a full refund.

But discovering that the hacker had not only spent over £70 on clothing website Prettylittlething.com, but left her own name, 'Lauryn,' and address, he decided that the only thing for it was to send her a strongly worded note.

In its witty reply, Huw, of Redhill, Surrey, wrote that he "is not a pit of money" and signed off by saying "warm regards and f**k you".

He wrote: "My Dearest Lauryn, I hope this letter finds you well, elegantly clad in your newest purchases from PrettyLittleThing.

"I am writing to you on this crisp February morning to ask you to f*ckin' not.

"Whilst I appreciate the appeal of free stuff is often insurmountable, I regret I am not a pit of money and my kindness does not extend to the non-consensual purchases of tacky clothing for total strangers.

"I highly recommend you embark on an administrative apprenticeship, or indeed any other job, so that you may self-fund these extravagant endeavours in the future.

"Keep me updated, I would provide contact details but I suspect you already have them.

"Let me know if you'd like my mother's maiden name, national insurance number or favourite childhood teacher."

Speaking about why he wrote the letter, Huw said: "Me and my friend drafted the letter together and we just wanted to be sarcastic about it. We were still in the pub and drafted the letter on my phone.

"I did it mostly for the fun of it and for the satisfaction of knowing the person might end up reading it. I felt insulted that someone tried to do that to me and use my account in that way.

"For me it was a little bit of revenge and taking back control."

As well as a receiving a full refund from PayPal, Huw reported the incident to Action Fraud. He has also since changed his login details.

What an icon.
