A scorned woman outed her ‘filthy cheater’ partner in a brutal fashion after taking out a full-page newspaper advert and using his credit card to pay for it.

The woman, known only as ‘Jenny,’ took out the ad in Australia’s Mackay and Whitsunday Life newspaper to reveal ‘Steve’ had been allegedly playing away.

The ad reads: “Dear Steve. I hope you’re happy with her. 

“Now the whole town will know what a filthy cheater you are. From Jenny.”

‘Jenny’ then stuck the boot in a little further, adding: “P.S. I bought this ad using your credit card.”

It has been reported that ‘Jenny’ wanted to pay $AUD2,000 to ensure not only ‘Steve’s’ embarrassment, but a hit on his bank balance too. 

Unfortunately for her, revenge came free of charge as the transaction could not be completed.

According to The Mirror, the Queensland newspaper said: “Jenny booked the ad through our newspaper’s online portal and it was published in this Friday’s edition.

“When payment for the ad was due to be processed it was noticed that the name on the credit card was different to the name on the booking so no payment was taken for the ad.”

After the advert went viral on Facebook, editors at Mackay and Whitsunday Life posted further information after being ‘inundated with questions’.

They wrote: “We have been inundated with dozens of messages this morning about the Advert on Page 4 of Mackay Life – As there’s too many to reply to; we would like to address it here.

“1. We do NOT know who Steve is, but apparently he’s been very very bad.

“2. We won’t be revealing any details about Jenny.

“3. We have not charged the credit card in question.”

One person said in the Facebook comments: “Not all heroines wear capes. Jenny is my new favourite person.”

Another said: “Jenny sounds like someone I want to be friends with”.

In an unexpected twist, ‘Jenny’ then received a response, not just from ‘Steve,’ but from ‘all the Steve’s’.

The Highway Hotel in Adelaide posted its response to the dramatic expose on its roadside sign. 

In a show of solidarity with the enigmatic ‘Jenny,’ the sign reads: “Dear Jenny, I’m sorry. From all the Steves.”
