A man bought this woman a drink on a night out - then asked for his money back when she didn't go out with him

It's certainly a novel strategy, buying someone a drink and then asking for your money back a few weeks later.

This is what happened to Abby Fenton, 18, who was partying in Sheffield when she was approached by a man who offered her a drink.

She accepted the offering and they exchanged numbers, before continuing the night separately.

The MailOnline reports she said:

I was at the bar and about to get myself a drink when he came over and said: 'I'll get that for you, you're gorgeous and all that.'

I just said I wanted something with vodka in and then we must have swapped numbers before I walked off.

In two weeks time, she received a text, reading:

Hi hope u don't mind love but can you transfer me back £6.50

She replied:

Who's this hahahah

He said:

Liam from the viper rooms a few weeks ago. I bought yer a drink? Can I have money back for it. Will give u sort code and account no. Thank

Abby told the MailOnline:

I paid him back straight away even though I wasn't going to at first as I thought it was so cheeky, but then I thought he might have needed it.

He wasn't my type really but I just thought that when you're out, people buy you drinks!

The text message exchange was tweeted by Abby and later shared by the Viper Rooms Facebook page.

Abby also conducted a Twitter poll about whether she should have paid the drinks money back:

Seems she's too generous.

In a Facebook post she's also expressed displeasure at how the story has been reported in the press:

indy100 has contacted Abby Fenton for comment.
