An Australian mum has launched a GoFundMe page asking for $100,000 to fund her luxurious lifestyle.
Margarita Tomovski earned herself the title of ‘Mercedes Mum’ after she allegedly led police on a six mile high speed chase in her Mercedes Benz while her toddler sat unrestrained in the back. The 27-year-old later appeared in court of over the alleged pursuit in her $260,000 car.
She’s racked up an impressive Instagram following thanks to showing off her designer clothes, fancy cars and casino trips, and now she’s asking them for help.
Margarita has asked her social media following to fund her lavish lifestyle after claiming harassment from Raptor, a New South Wales Police strike force targeting criminal activity, claiming they’re stopping her from being able to get a job.
She told her followers:
I know you all don’t know me but I’m actually not a bad person.
These dogs are liers [sic] and have something against me for no reason as I’m sure I’m not the only one.
They have made it very hard for me to maintain a job as no one would hire me due to the bullsh*t from raptor and ACA combined.
So I created this GoFundMe to raise some support against the bullsh*t that they have done to me and everyone else. It’s about time we fight back. Enough is enough!
Thank you in advance for your support.
She even encouraged her followers to share the page in a bid to raise more cash for her luxurious lifestyle.
Margarita has since removed the GoFundMe link from her account, which would suggest she didn’t quite get the feedback she’d hoped for.
The alleged pursuit happened on November 13, on the Princes Highway in Helensburg, where police claim she reached speeds of more than 120 mph.
Officers say they found an unrestrained three-year-old girl in the back seat. Although she was unharmed, police say she was in a distressed state and officers had to calm her down.
Margarita had her license suspended and her case will return to court in August.
A spokesperson for New South Wales Police is reported by the Daily Mail Australia as saying Margarita is not and has never been investigated by strike force Raptor.
They added she was pulled over by an officer from the strike force, but only because they had been patrolling the road at that time.
