Just A Thought!

National Lottery

You know how every so often a strange thought comes into your mind – well this was one I had the other day when someone said I should just do the National lottery online by Direct Debit:

Say you did this with the same numbers every week. Now say the bank makes an error and fails to pay on the week your numbers come up.

Presumably there wouldn’t be a valid ticket but would the Direct Debit Scheme cover you not only for the payment but for the money you would have won – which you can prove you do every week.

Thinking more broadly, what if a company takes too much from a Direct Debit which makes you go overdrawn – would they then be liable for the amount you would have won?

I’d love to see that one go to court… and I bet the solicitors would too!
