Amanda, Stacey, a 34-year-old housewife, the UK, has received an 11-month deferred jail sentence for false claiming in the lottery. What happened is that Amanada found the lottery ticket on the floor at the grocery store, brought it home and found out that the ticket had winnings numbers and was worth GBP 30,000.
The ticket belonged to Dorothy McDonagh, a 61-year-old gambler, who purchased tickets on the regular basis and kept receipts as a proof of purchase. The old woman revealed the situation and the case was forwarded to the police.
So, this way, Amanda learnt that any fraudulent activities result in jail time.
