A Kesgrave, England man who ran an unlicensed gambling syndicate will serve no jail time.  Thirteen of his clients lost a total of £30,000.

From The Ipswich Star:

Darren Hudson Wood initially ran a tipping service but then set up an unlicensed betting pots system whereby customers would give him money and he would make bets on their behalf, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

The Court heard that Wood lied to customers, telling them he was winning bets with their money. 

“He continued to accept money from his customers and over a four month period the money he took from them was under false pretences,” said prosecutor Petr Gair, prosecuting.
