A shopworker tried to cheat a great-grandmother out of a £1million lottery jackpot by telling her that her winning ticket was worthless.

When Maureen Holt, 77, took the ticket to Farrakh Nizzar and asked him to check the numbers at a shop in Oldham, he told her that she’d won nothing and offered to throw it in the bin for her.

But the numbers actually matched up to a seven-figure jackpot and Nizzar, 30, who had known Mrs Holt for a year, then tried to use it to claim the money for himself.

In for the win: Maureen Holt, 77, and husband Fred could not believe that 'Lucky' had tried to dupe them and they could be millionairesIn for the win: Maureen Holt, 77, and husband Fred could not believe that ‘Lucky’ had tried to dupe them and they could be millionaires

  1. Gees Farrakh Nizzar sounds like a MUSLIM name how typical for someone from the religion of peace to do that to somebody like Maureen a typical BRITISH female.
