From Sky News:
Three people are being held in France over a £22m scam in the Euromillions Lottery.
Those arrested include two Paris shopkeepers, who are said to have duped a customer out of the winning 33m euros ticket.
So how about this....two shopkeepers lied about the winning numbers for a 33 million Euro payout Jackpot! They kept the ticket and got an accomplice
to pretend to be the winner. After banking the money, the accomplice pays the shopkeepers 30 million and keeps themselves 3 million .
By golly! Easy money.......except one drawback.....they got caught. :bash:
Temptation obviously got the better of them, but the real winner got his payout in the end. I imagine the shopkeepers will get what they deserve
