The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, treated herself to tracksuit bottoms from JD Sports, as well as some food and water.

A series of clips, uploaded on Instagram, included a warning from the woman herself, whose face is blurred out as she speaks.

She said: ‘So this morning I found a square, spent all the money off of it.’

‘Now, just don’t lose the contactless cards guys. You have been warned. I am about.’

After finding the Lloyds Bank card, the woman took it shopping in Brixton, south London, taking advantage of the contactless spending limit of £30 per purchase.

The final image in the clip shows the woman handing a McDonald’s meal and bottle of water to a homeless man with the caption: ‘Bad deed for a good deed innit.’

It is not known if she kept the card after the spending spree, or if the fraud was reported to police.

Contactless payments can be made on individual purchases of up to £30 – card users need to enter their PIN to buy anything more expensive.
