CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A prankster on YouTube who bought a fake lottery ticket for a homeless man, knowing the man was going to win, has now bought the same homeless man a home to call his own.

Rahat Hossain owns the YouTube channel ‘Magic of Rahat.’ He usually creates videos of himself performing pranks or illusions.

In March, Hossain “purchased a winning lottery ticket” and gave it to a homeless man. Little did the homeless man know that the lotto ticket was fake and that he was going to win $1,000 regardless. The $1,000 was supplied by Hossain.

Since this event, viewers have reached out to Hossain to provide donations for the homeless man. The goal was to collect $20,000 and the donations ended up doubling that. The total money collected for the homeless man was $44,000.

Hossain used this money to buy a house for his best friend, the homeless man whose name is Eric.

Eric has also recently scored a job.

The video on YouTube is called ‘Homeless Man Gets A Home.’
