Compulsive Online Bingo Player

Balaam, reportedly a compulsive online bingo gambler, was convicted in the Cambridge Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts of fraud by abuse of position and one count of false accounting.

The court heard evidence that she used a sophisticated and complex method of falsifying invoices to obtain a total of £285,986.18 between June 2012 and January 2014, and defrauded  the Girton Social Club, where she worked as treasurer, of £3,198.

In total it was estimated she made and lost more than £6 million during her online gambling addiction, the Metro daily newspaper reports.
