Celebrate:MK reporter Vicki McCarthy finds national online fame with The Mirror and Unilad after using her dog to model shoes for sale.
Celebrate:MK music reporter Vicki McCarthy has found national fame by hilariously putting the boot into guys who sneakily tried to obtain pictures of her feet online.
Vicki advertised a few pairs of her old shoes on Facebook Marketplace in an attempt to get some money for them, but the adverts proved far more popular among men than she might have thought.
She was soon inundated with messages from guys who claimed to be interested in buying them – but only if she’d first send pictures of them being worn.
So she obliged by getting her dog, Murphy, to model the shoes for her before sending the men pictures of the adorable pup dressed up to the nines.
Vicki’s story was picked up by a number of national websites including Bored Panda, The Mirror, The Sun, The Poke and Unilad, giving Vicki – who has won TV quiz shows The Weakest Link and Big Break in the past – her latest taste of fame.
Vicki said: “I first encountered guys messaging me for photos of me wearing the shoes I was selling when I used eBay.
“I did oblige in the beginning as I didn’t realise it wasn’t innocent, but as soon as I did send a photo of them being worn, the requests would get bolder, asking me to wear stockings, asking if the shoes smelled etc. My dog is always happy to help!”
In response to one post for a £15 pair of Vicki’s nude heels, one man wrote: “Hi. Thinking of getting these for my girlfriend. Would it be possible to see a pic of them on though?”
Another man said: “Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to see some more photos of the heels?”, while another asked: ‘I am looking to get some for Valentine’s Day, so would it be possible to see what they look like on and full view? Thanks.”
Posting on Reddit, Vicki responded with the photo of Murphy, and stated: “When I’m selling my high heels on Marketplace, this is how I deal with dudes that pretend to want to buy my shoes to try and get some free w*** bank material. This girl wasn’t born yesterday.”
Funnily enough, she didn’t hear from the men again. Vicki had initially attempted to rope in her boyfriend Don (pictured with her, above) but his feet were too big.
She added: I’m not kinkshaming by the way, but whatever you’re into should be involving two consenting adults, not drawing someone unsuspecting into your fetish.”
