In a post titled “How To Get Paid for a Lotteries Ticket” on Reddit, a user asked how to obtain an invitation to a lottery, and in response to that question, someone from the NOLA real estate agency said “don’t call it a lottery.
Call it a bingo.”
The post has since been deleted.
The user in question, a redditor by the name of btwj, went on to explain how he obtained an invitation by creating a new Reddit account and then posting a screenshot of the page to imgur.
The screenshot had been uploaded by the user, who was claiming to be an agent at the agency, and was labeled as a “bonus”.
This, apparently, resulted in the account being flagged for spam, and the account was closed.
The NOLI representative did not respond to multiple requests for comment by The Associated Press.
The Reddit user’s account was eventually taken down.
