Wedding planner steals marriage dreams from clients to blow on gambling addiction

Three women Friday told how their dreams of fairytale weddings in New York were left in tatters by a cruel British conwoman.

Grasping Lisa Harrison set herself up as a wedding planner specializing in ceremonies in the Big Apple — but stole more than $125,000 from clients.

The 34 year-old blew all the money on her online gambling addiction and left 19 couples heartbroken.

Harrison, who ran iPlan New York from her home in Earith, Cambs., UK, was jailed this week for two years after admitting fraudulent trading.

Continued at link.  This summer I gambled on the penny slots in NM, but if I lost $10 it was $10 too much.  Mostly breaking even after a couple of hours was more fun.  Hubby and I only went to the Native Casino a couple of times all summer.

People change for two main reasons: either their minds have been opened or their hearts have been broken.
