The ABC has the sad tale of Pamela Close who stole vast sums from the stunningly incompetent ACTTAB by placing bets after races had closed thanks to the fact she was working for them.
(Staff loyalty is one thing but perhaps not a great idea to take bets from your own workers any of the time)
Close told the ACT Supreme Court how she gave some money to charity and used the rest to gamble on racing, poker machines and online betting.
Close carried out the scam for more than a decade from 2001.
The granny’s getting one year in the clink and another 18 months of weekends in periodic detention.
