A mum has been left raging after she paid £85 for a 'Grinch visit' for her son — and ended up having her home trashed.
The dodgy impersonator is alleged to have entered her house, destroyed the contents of a buffet, and damaged numerous items of property.
Mother Laura Magill, who according to BelfastLive is from Northern Ireland, shared her bizarre experience in a Facebook status where she describes feeling "disgusted" by the rogue festive entertainer.
She claims that while the advertisement suggested the Grinch would "mess the kids bed", throw toilet paper on their Christmas tree and take photographs at the end, what she received instead was something far more destructive.
Describing the damage, the mum writes: "Every bit of party food expensive cupcakes threw all over the place tree decorations BROKE !!! "
"Fairy up liquid poured on my kitchen floor eggs smashed and a full bottle of juice poured over my floor and SON !!!"
She added that she had contacted the company which had sent the troublesome Grinch, but had received no reply.
Laura's story has now gone viral with over 132,000 likes after a Twitter user named Cafucatfood screenshotted the post.
Finding humour in the surreal event, he wrote in the caption: "Maybe the funniest thing iv (sic) ever seen in my life".
Many tweeted back in disbelief at the story, with some asking why a parent would spend such a sum on having someone mess up a room.

A Northern Irish events company have also hit back after being mistaken for the group involved in the visit.
LOC-Down Events Superheroes & Princess Hire clarified the post in question wasn't about their Grinch, who is a "movie quality Jim Carey style Grinch" set for performances, plays, and games – not for wrecking the homes of shocked parents.
The group added they "do not destroy any property at events or home visits."
The Daily Star have contacted Laura Magill for comment.
