Fundraising website GoFundMe shut down a fundraising page launched by a woman who said she spent all of her money on Powerball tickets. 

The Memphis-based mother in Tennessee, named Cinnamon Nicole, launched the page after claiming to have blown all of her money on tickets for the $1.6 billion lottery.

“Please help me and my family as we have exausted [sic] all of our funds," the woman wrote on her fundraising page. "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 [sic] and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.”
