A Sydney man is being accused of intentionally trying to mislead his friends and followers on both Facebook and Instagram.

Insurance salesman Todd Parkes posted a photo of himself at the helm of a luxury speedboat, with the caption ‘Living The Dream #Winning’

“He asked me to step out of the photo,” claims the boat owner Antony Avramidis.

“I thought it was a bit weird as it’s my boat. To be honest, he was lucky to be invited onto my boat.”

Moments after Todd Parkes posted the misleading photo, other boat owners came forward with similar complaints against Todd Parkes.

“He did the same thing to me,” Dan Mullins told DBT.

“When I took him out on my yacht last month he posted a montage of pics making him look like some kind of billionaire business mogul.”

Todd Parkes was unavailable for comment.
