Woman auctioned off ex-boyfriend’s secret fishing spots for big cash


Breakups can be painful. But on the bright side, they can lead to some creative revenge schemes. To wit: A spurned New Zealand woman sold the secret locations to her ex-boyfriend's favorite fishing spots, netting $3,000, which she then spent on herself.
The drama went down in January of 2012 but is just now getting wide pickup on the Web (http://boingboing.net/2013/01/03/woman-whose-ex-wont-return.html). New Zealand's Stuff magazine (http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/8132996/Fishing-spots-sold-on-Trade-Me-after-breakup) reports that the unnamed ex had entrusted Angela Potter with the locations to his secret fishing holes. But once the fella hightailed it for Australia without much notice, Potter auctioned the information on the Web. She expected just a few hits, but instead got nearly 90,000.

Potter insisted that she wasn't out to be cruel. Rather, her ex-boyfriend forced her hand when he took off with her luggage (ouch). "When he refused to return my suitcase, that's when I sold his coordinates," she said. "I didn't list them to be vindictive. I listed them as a bit of a laugh."
Laughs or not, Potter earned herself a nice chunk of change. She is now dating a new fisherman. However she hasn't shared her ex-boyfriend's fishing spots with the new fella. "I wouldn't do that," Potter said. "I'm fairly honorable in that respect."

hahaha, if he scorned her and all she did was sell his fishing marks (which by the sounds of, he won't be needing them in australia....) he got off easy. Plenty of women out there that will do more than sell your marks should you scorn them... :D
