A United States motorist’s “embarrassing” car insurance mix-up has gone viral on internet globally.
Alyssa Stringfellow, from Arkansas, posted on Facebook how she unintentionally sent pictures of herself to an insurance company instead of photos of her car.
The mother, 25 years, said she would have to send across to the insurance company her drivers’ license number, birth date and “a photo straight on and a photo taken from each side”.
“She gave me his email and I emailed the details along with the images that night,” the teacher said.
“The next day, I checked my inbox and found THIS reply: ‘Hi Alyssa, I’m will need photos like you just took, except it has to be of your car. :)’
“As you can see, It wasn’t the picture of my vehicle…I sent him that of myself!”

Ms Stringfellow realized the comic part of the mix-up, but accepted she debated “whether to post or not” what happened on Facebook.
“Needless to say, I was amusely embarrassed, and everybody at work really laughed at my clear misinterpretation,” she wrote.
“The crazy thing is, I asked my mom to take the photos when I got off work, and we talked about why in the whole world he would want my photos, never once considering it was meant to be that of my vehicle.
“But, you know what its said, either you have book smarts or street smarts, and I obviously don’t have the latter!”
