‘Mercedes Mum’ who ‘led cops on a high-speed chase in her $260k car’ is begging for $100,000 on GoFundMe claiming she can’t hold down a job because of ‘constant police harassment’
As reported in the mail online
A mother who allegedly led police on a 10km chase reaching speeds of up to 200km/h in her Mercedes Benz – while her toddler daughter sat unrestrained in the back – is asking for money to fund her lifestyle.
Margarita Tomovska, 27, quickly earned a name for herself as the ‘Mercedes Mum’ after appearing at court over the alleged pursuit in her $260,000 luxury car.
She attracted attention after turning up at Wollongong Local Court last year dressed in jewelled Gucci sunglasses, which retail for $1,725, a figure-hugging Balmain dress worth $2,400, and Christian Louboutin shoes.
Tomovska has continued to flaunt her designer clothes, luxury cars and frequent trips to the casino on social media, where she has attracted a significant following.
Now she is using that platform to beg for money to fund her lifestyle, claiming harassment from Raptor, a New South Wales Police strike force targeting bikies and related criminal activity, has stopped her being able to get a job.
‘I know you all don’t know me but I’m actually not a bad person,’ she wrote on a GoFundMe page set up on Thursday night.
‘These dogs are liers [sic] and have something against me for no reason as I’m sure I’m not the only one.
‘They have made it very hard for me to maintain a job as no one would hire me due to the bullsh** from raptor and ACA combined.
‘So I created this GoFund me to raise some support against the bullsh** that they have done to me and everyone else. It’s about time we fight back. Enough is enough!
‘Thank you in advance for your support.’
The mother-of-one encouraged followers to support her by sharing the link on her Instagram story.
Tomovska’s car is worth about $260,000 new, and the Sutherland Shire woman regularly splashes thousands on designer clothing.
On Monday, she shared an image of herself sitting at a pokies machine at The Star in Sydney, wearing a Louie Vuitton scarf and shoes, and holding $8,000 worth of chips in her hand.
During the November 13 alleged pursuit on the Princes Highway in Helensburg, police said Tomovska reached speeds of more than 200km/h.
When she stopped after 10 kilometres, she and her male passenger were arrested.
Officers allegedly found an unrestrained three-year-old girl in the back seat.
The child wasn’t hurt but she was in a distressed state and officers had to help calm her down, police said.
The man was released but Tomovska had her licence suspended.
The case will return to court in August.
A spokeswoman for NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia Tomovska is not and has never been investigated by strike force Raptor.
She was pulled over by an officer from the strike force, but only because they had been patrolling the road at that time.
