Man uses Photoshop to get ridiculously rich, and it worked (kind of)

A man in the United States recently used Photoshop to pass himself off as a millionaire….and quickly received more than 118,000 likes on his Instagram – even after he admitted it was all a hoax.

The man in question is Erik Bragg, who posted this image after the Powerball numbers (lottery in the US) were revealed. The jackpot for this particular draw was a staggering $1.5 billion. It’s quite obvious his winning ticket was the result of a bit of Photoshop experimentation, however he should still receive points for effort.

The internet has managed to put this man in his place, however he still continues winning in terms of internet fame. He hasn’t become rich in terms of money, but he has now got a wealth of Instagram followers, so I suppose he has won…in his own way.
