Man spends R740 000 on alcohol for New Year
Written by Keshia Jansen on December 28, 2017
A photo of a R739 391 receipt for an alcohol purchase has been circulating on social media.
The purchase includes a R600 000 bottle of Glenfiddich 50-year-old whiskey and a R50 999 bottle of 30-year-old single malt Port Ellen.
The receipt is dated 24 December and includes a hefty tip of R786.
Although the legitimacy of the receipt has not been confirmed, Times Live claims to have tracked down the man whose name appears on it.
Speaking to Times Live, the 28-year-old revealed that he had bought the alcohol for a New Year’s Eve party.
Apparently the photo of the receipt was not purposefully shared.
“That picture accidentally leaked to social media. I am not a show-off like other Forex or binary traders. Most of them think that they are rich or self-claimed millionaires but when it comes to reality‚ they got nothing‚” the Durban man said.
