Three conspire to cheat man of €35.5m lottery

Les Miserable says:

Two Paris tobacconists and an unemployed man cheated a customer out of a €35.5m win on the EuroMillions lottery last month. The shopkeepers did the old switcheroo – they told the customer, a 30-year-old accountant, that his tickets were all losers and they binned them. In fact, two of them, with exactly the same permutations of numbers, had won the weekly jackpot. It wasn't until French Intelligence got involved that they were able to work out what happened.
