‘Yahoo News’ reports that a man who deceived 75 children in Britain by promising them the opportunity to take part in the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games has been jailed for two years. Prosecutors said he charged each child for taking part and built up an elaborate operation by training the dancers, securing equipment and gaining sponsorship from local companies. “Children as young as nine were left devastated by the actions of this man, whose fraudulent plan could never succeed”, police said in a statement.
