Winning numbers for life set BACK with a HUGE £3.6m lottery jackpot up for grabs

Lottery fraudster who gave £2.5m after using FAKE ticket faces six years in prison

The former bricklayer, 56, is about to lose his home and land in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, where he plans to build the hotel.

If he fails to deliver his property, worth £939,782.44, within three months, six years will be added to the nine-year sentence he has already served.

Putman, now 56, was found guilty in October 2019 of using a fake winning ticket to claim a £2.5m jackpot in 2009.

The house near the M25 is currently in a squalid, unkempt state with the curtains drawn.

The site resembles a vehicle graveyard – with at least twenty cars and trucks parked alongside caravans and mobile homes.

During a hearing at St Albans’ court today, prosecutor Adam Pearson said the benefit Putman gained from the fraud was £2,525,495 and the amount that could be forfeited was £939,782.44.

His attorney Lawrence Selby said: “Mr Putman does not accept or agree the number of benefits or realizable assets, but will not object to these proceedings.” Winning numbers for life set BACK with a HUGE £3.6m lottery jackpot up for grabs
