When 38-year-old Lucy Brown from London received a request for cash from a first date, to cover the money he'd spent on drinks, she publicly shamed him. Ms Brown was on her second date after joining the online apps Plenty of Fish and Tinder when she met the man in question.

They went for drinks and the date apparently went quite well but afterwards she texted him to let him know she was not interested in meeting up again.

She was taken by surprise when he texted back to say he was "devastated" and asked for a "contribution for the drinks I spent on you", adding his account number and sort code to the end of the text.
