Why is it harsh? They got a suspended sentence.

The article doesn't give the full story but we do know that between them they admitted to fraud and theft. They didn't just "find" the ticket there was clearly some deception going on as well.

The were fraudsters and pretended to be the person(s) written on the back of the ticket. They deserve all that they get, fuckers.

It reads as if they found the ticket on the floor and cashed it in?

Why is that theft?

The Staceys admitted charges of making a false representation, and Amanda Stacey also admitted theft. They were given 11-month suspended sentences.
Police were brought in after Dorothy McDonagh proved to lottery firm Camelot that the ticket was hers, The Sun newspaper reported.


Um, in this paragraph. The way I intepret the law the person knowingly knew they were mis representing themselves in order to obtain a gain. This is in mind meant that something was written on the back of the ticket.


If the ticket was blank and the original owner lost it how could they ever ever know it was theirs or indeed prove it was? If it had their name on it and Camelot announced that Mrs X, from Y just won £30,000 and you were that person and didn't receive any money it would raise alarm bells.

Edmond, it would not have been one word against another as neither party could prove the ticket was theirs. Like I said, how would you know that I had your winning ticket and cashed it in without you filling in the back? (ie you lost it in a shop and it was blank)

We are reminding players to keep their tickets safe and fill out their names and addresses on the back. That way there can be no dispute.

this tells me that they hadn't filled out the back of the ticket, otherwise why would they be making this statement

what do you mean both sections? I'm looking at the back of one now, and it just has a couple of lines for the name and address?

I think that the original owner only put her name on it and not her address. We could go on for hours, personally I think they deserve everything they get, fucking wasters. I was brought up better than that.

Hehe, I gotta text my bro in Vietnam to see if I can borrow a set of his shoes. Could always leave a postit note where they would normally be and hope for the best. When I went to the fancy dress shop bumped into someone I knew but not her name. OOps. It was the wife of the guy who lives in Farnham with the shed business.

God my memory is so shit I feel ashamed. Was stood there talking for like 10-15 minutes and couldn't remember her name. Oh, they could be the ones that drop me off each time at my house with the flatbed pickup.

Fuckit, I will get my coat....

I vaguely remember the last time, I spent most of the journey talking to one of their kids. I am sure we discussed nuclear physics and things like that :p

Tracey is it, I remember now. Btw, is Richard M going?
