A woman alleges her boyfriend stole from her while she went on a girl’s trip after he dumped her.
Financial abuse might be more common than you think. A 2017 survey by CentSai of 2,000 people between 18 and 35 found that 70% of millennial women experienced financial abuse from a romantic partner. Financial abuse can range from stealing to controlling or restricting another person’s money.
“I went to Puerto Rico for my bday, and my BF broke up with me and broke into my house and stole 13K and my brand new MacBook while I was gone,” she said, adding a few clown emojis.
“Don’t trust boys from NYC!!! They don’t love you!” she added in the caption.
People in the comment section shared their support and similar experiences.
“Same. Broke up with my ex, and my house got robbed 2 hrs later,” another said.
“Someone’s mad they didn’t go with u to Puerto Rico,” a person commented.
