If you win $250,000 on a game show, DON’T do this.

As this year’s winner of the Australian version of Big Brother, Tim Dormer scored a quarter of a million dollars in prize money.

Although he may have outsmarted his housemates to nab the top prize, what he did next may not have been quite so clever. After graciously accepting the prize, Tim utilised all the dignity and class his audience have come to expect, by bragging about his increased bank balance to the world, on Twitter. What he didn’t realise was that when he boastfully posted the image for the world to see, he hadn’t removed his bank details from the top of the statement. With that information anyone – anyone in the world, that is – could have withdrawn the money from Tim’s account.

He spotted his mistake in time and closed the account, but I can’t help thinking there’s a lesson in here somewhere.

Who would have thought that this bloke….

Tim Dormer
