An electrician who lost his passport two years ago was amazed to get a confession from a teenager who had been using it to get into clubs and pubs for boozy nights out.
Joe Hunter, 21, has shared the bashful message from Sam Cole, who admitted the missing ID had also been used by his friends and left in a “battered” state.
But good-natured Joe, who lost the passport in a bar, has taken the news in his stride, even describing cheeky Sam as a “good lad”.
He said: “I was in hysterics when I realised he was serious. I thought ‘what a guy’. I definitely found it funny, because it’s something I’d do.
“I scrolled down on his Instagram and every single post he had a drink in his hand or he was at some event or on a night out. I’m glad it’s served him well.
“He said it’s been passed around so much. It’s been used in brothels and all sorts of places, so fair play to them.”
In his confession, Sam, of Halifax, West Yorks, said he would no longer need the fake ID, as he has turned 18, and offered to return the passport to Joe or hand it on to the next fake “Joe Hunter” in line.
But Joe, of Baildon, West Yorks, who has a replacement passport, declined, adding he was glad it had been used for something enjoyable.
He said: “I like the fact he’s got back in touch with me and revealed where it’s been all this time.
"I think it’s hilarious just to think that it’s been used by all these different people to have a good time.”
