Shopkeeper guilty of lottery fraud

PUBLISHED March 27, 2013

A shopkeeper from Gravesend has been found guilty of trying to con a lottery syndicate out of nearly £80,000 in winnings. Imran Pervais, 26, misled the winning group into thinking they had won £10 when in fact they had scooped £79,887 after matching five balls and the bonus ball.
