Margarita Tomovska soon became referred to as the ‘Mercedes Mum’ by news outlets in Australia, after she showed up in court over police chase she had been engaged with, driving her $260,000 vehicle.
The 27-year-old was purportedly led police on a chase on the Princes Highway in Helensburgh for 10 km, reaching a speed of up to 200 km/h – with her young girl in the backseat.
The November 13 chase ended when she pulled over, she was arrested with her male passenger and a with the 3-year-old girl.
People first started showing interest in her after she turned up to Wollongong Local Court last year dressed in jewelled Gucci sunglasses, Louboutin shoes and a Balmain dress worth $2,400. Her male passenger was released but Tomovska had her licence suspended, with the case returning to court in August.
Since after this incident she became famous on social media – and is utilizing it as a platform to get some help from her 68k Instagram followers.
As indicated by Tomovska, police haras**ent (specifically from the anti-biker gang Strike Force Raptor) has stopped her from getting a new job, and she’s in need of $100,000 in donations to keep going.
On the GoFundMe page she reportedly set up on Thursday, she wrote:
“I know you all don’t know me but I’m actually not a bad person. These dogs are liers [sic] and have something against me for no reason as I’m sure I’m not the only one.
“Due to the bullshit that they have made up about me on current affair they have restricted my rights to see my daughter. They have made it very hard for me to maintain a job as no one would hire me due to the bullsh** from raptor and ACA combined.
“So I created this GoFund me to raise some support against the bullsh** that they have done to me and everyone else. It’s about time we fight back. Enough is enough! Thank you in advance for your support.”
According to daily mail Australia: Tomovska is not being investigated, and never was. According to the authorities, she was pulled over by an officer from the strike force because they had been patrolling the road at the time.
So far she has raised $175 of the $100,000 goal.
