Check your privacy settings! An Australian teenager learned a hard lesson about privacy when her parent’s house was robbed just hours after she posted a photo of a large amount of money belonging to her 72-year-old grandmother.
The 17-year-old was helping her grandmother count her savings in Sydney when she posted a photo of the cash to her Facebook account. Within a few hours, two robbers, armed with a club and a knife, broke into her parent’s house in Bundanoon demanding to talk to the girl about the money. Her mother, father, and 14-year-old brother were in the house at the time. When her mother told the robbers that the teen no longer lived at the house, they took some money and other objects before leaving.
The robbers were wearing masks, dark clothing, and gloves.
It is unclear how the robbers got her parent’s address, or whether they know the girl. Investigators are not sharing what the teen’s privacy settings were on her Facebook account. Local police reminded residents to be cautious about the information and images they post on Facebook.
