Gravesend man denies telling £79,000 lottery winner he had won £10
A SALES assistant alleged to have told a £79,000 lottery winner he had won just £10 has denied the charge in court.
Imran Pervais, aged 26, of Milton Road, Gravesend, appeared at Dartford Magistrates' Court charged with fraud by false representation on October 17.
The charge relates to an incident on May 18 this year when a customer presented a ticket worth £79,887 to him at a store in Gravesend.
It is alleged Pervais told the winner he had won just £10.
The Crown Prosecution Service claims he did this in order to gain the winnings himself.
Pervais will appear at Dartford Magistrates again on December 12 where his case will be committed to crown court.
