BBC News - Virgin Media staff in X Factor bet scam
I am not sure what Law was broken though really? They had more information than other people and used that to help them decide what odds/bets were likely to happen and good value.
They did not actually know the results and even if they did I still dont think that is illegal plenty of people sit at Races trackside and back at 1.01 as the Horse crosses the line, they know the result too!
I can see why they lost their jobs though, silly Boys.
