They can’t allow them to have the money surely?
What’s the boards view?
No. Wait, I mean yes. Actually I don't know the story sorry. A link would be helpful!
They won't get it.
Obviously, tHeY SHoULd gIVe iT tO tEh fAMILieS (or just the original card holder)
They look like a right couple of idiots.
Surely the person or persons who had the card stolen are entitled to the winnings as they were the registered card holders. Therefore they paid for the ticket.
You beat me to it. What a story that would be.
They're not going to have the money to sue, surely.
Genuine legal action, rather than weak threats, is expensive, difficult and takes a long time.
Their lawyers have probably convinced the dimwits to do it on a no win - no free basis for 50% of the cash.
They should get in touch with the guy who’s card they stole and cut him a deal.
Yeh how about I keep all the money and I don’t press charges against you two absolute scumbags
I would maybe think about buying them one scratch card in return
So they borrowed money off their mates and went out on a spending spree. Presumably they have to pay that back now.
Probably why the colonel hasn't announced who the platinum member is
How about not buying them a scratch card but just sent the scumbags back to prison
The symbolism of it would serve well I think Facey
Pair of scumbags and the lawyer sounds a tool too. Hopefully all will come away from it with fuck all.
They should get the money
Then have it confiscated as proceeds of crime
Is there any proof they used a stolen card?
As I understood it whwmen the story broke around Easter they borrowed a guys card from the pub but couldn't remember who he was when asked
Unless the owner of the card used has said they gave permission for these guys to use it, then it is surely theft.
Is there any evidence that no permission was given?
As an aside, if I was that cardholder, I'd come out publicly and say I'd agree to it and that the deal was I'd get 50% and they'd share the rest between them.
I’m not entirely sure they have managed to find the card holder yet - it’s unclear from the story
I’m sure if they had given permission though, they would be easily contactable by the pair.
If it turned out to be my card, then my money had been wagered against Camelot and this I would claim 100%
I assume Camelot can tell it was bought by a card so if these 2 can’t evidence the purchase they are quite correct in withholding the cash.
You run a gambling site - would you allow people to deposit money from a bank account that could not be verified as their own?
