A New Zealand woman whose boyfriend broke up with her and skipped the country got her sweet (and lucrative) revenge by auctioning off the offending cad’s super-secret GPS fishing spot coordinates. Ouch…

From this story on
There is no better cure for a breakup than treating yourself to some lovely jewellery, and that is exactly what a Waikato teacher did after selling her ex-boyfriend’s most prized possession.The ex-boyfriend was a keen fisherman and had entrusted her with his secret fishing spots, but after he fled to Australia with little notice, Angela Potter got revenge. Miss Potter was clearing out her garage when she found the GPS markings for fishing spots in the Bay of Plenty and many other areas of the North Island, so she auctioned them off on Trade Me last January and scored herself a whopping $3000. The auction received 89,688 views, making it the 10th most viewed Trade Me auction of 2012, a surprise to Miss Potter. “I only expected it to get 100 hits,” she said. “My ex-boyfriend is an avid and very successful fisherman who asked me to protect his collection of GPS fishing spot co-ordinates [with my life no less]. Not a problem,” she wrote on the auction.

According to the story, Potter said she would never have sold the coordinates if only her boyfriend had been a little more decent about the break-up. However, she says her ex simply packed his stuff into her favorite suitcase one day and fled the country. And everyone knows you just don’t do that to a woman, especially one that knows how and where to hurt you…”When he refused to return my suitcase that’s when I sold his coordinates,” she said. “I didn’t list them to be vindictive. I listed them as a bit of a laugh.”
