Everybody likes to share photos when on holidays using Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, etc.. However, sharing too much information can lead to unexpected consequences like what happened to John Terry.
Back in February 2017, 36-year-old Ashton Villa defender and former Chelsea captain John Terry shared a picture of himself and with his wife Toni, 35, with his 3.4 million Instagram followers. The picture shows the couple standing on the slopes of a ski resort in the French alps. Terry included the caption “a great few days skiing with the family” with the image.
A duo of bad actors apparently saw the post and realized Terry’s £5 million mansion must be empty. Armed with axes, they went to the professional soccer player’s home at 10:30 pm on 25 February and stole approximately £400,000 worth of goods. The lifted items included £126,000 worth of luxury handbags and signed first edition Harry Potter books valued at £18,000.
