The End - 2000 to 2009

A WOMAN who won over £1.9 million ($3.67 million) as a teenager says she never should have been allowed to spend her fortune at such a young age.

Callie Rogers, 22, won the lottery when she was 16 years old and proceeded to go on a “never-ending spending spree”, News Of The World reports.

The second-youngest British person to win lotto spent the money on booze, two boob jobs and almost $500,000 of cocaine.

About $400,000 was spent on a family holiday while a large amount was also spent on a string on boyfriends.

When she won the million-dollar prize, she was earning almost $7 as a shelf stacker for her local supermarket. Now she lives at home with her mum.

“I honestly wish I’d never won the lottery money – and knowing what I know now I should have just given it all back to them,” Ms Rogers told News Of The World.

SubhanAllah! She made it big but yet it was taken all away from her within a short period of time. Now she wishes she never even won the money.

      ameen.

      this seems to happen to a lot of people who win the lotto. they feel they are on top of the world, only to be shown that their wealth is a trial which they fail miserably (not to mention its haram money in the first place).

      Well, it depends how you spend it. If i won that money, i would save half of it in my savings account. i would invest some of it in stock and mutual funds. Pay off all my bills. Buy a house. and buy a reliable long lasting car (honda).

      Young adults do not know how to use money.

      Ohyeah, i would give sadakah anonymously to my local masjid; i know i wouldnt be getting any barakah for it, but I’ll just do it for the benefit of the local muslim community.
