An Autralian student, Lexi took to Tinder to ask someone to pay her $110 traffic fine. The 25-year-old was pleasantly surprised when a man on the other side of the world took care of it.

Lexi, who studies at the University of Newcastle, had the infringement notice paid by a man from Shreveport, Louisiana.

Network Engineer Matt McHugh said he paid the fine after the pair got chatting, but does not expect anything in return except friendship.

Lexi too to her Tinder profile saying she was just looking for a nice guy to pay penalty infringement.

McHugh then sent her a screenshot of a receipt for the payment of the fine via Facebook messenger.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, he said that she was a good sport so he figured he would help her out.

'I don't have high hopes for anything more than friendship. We can all dream but it's hard to get one of those beautiful blonde Australians to come to America.
