A woman selling two “unused” lampshades online was mocked after people spotted a small plastic baggie filled with a suspicious white powder in the snaps.

Unfortunately for her, the dodgy item was spotted by sharp-eyed Facebook users who noticed the unintended extra.

On a buy-and-sell page, the woman was trying to make some extra cash by flogging two supposedly unused pink lampshades for £10.

But, the “shady” deal was screenshot and uploaded to Twitter where hundreds laughed at the seller's expense.

In one of the photos, one lampshade was pictured hanging from a ceiling fixture – which was switched on – despite the seller saying they had “never been used”.

Another rested on a table above a pile of random items and next to the small bag of unknown white powder.

The disastrous listing went viral on social media and has been retweeted more than 450 times.

Commenters told the woman to “hide her bag of coke next time.”

“A deal not to be sniffed at,” joked another poster.

A woman called Faye added: “Also, never been used?

“One of them is literally attached to the light fitting, being used.”

Meanwhile a bloke said: “Shady… in every sense.”

Hundreds of others joked at the dodgy seller’s expense asking if she was “paying by card.”

It’s unknown what substance the bag actually contained, but it’s a good idea to keep anything that looks like illegal drugs out of your social snaps.
