Ecstatic Steve Moseley danced on his desk, threw money from his wallet at colleagues and told his boss to stick his job after being convinced he had won a fortune. He also sent an office junior scampering out to buy him a bottle of expensive champagne and rang his girlfriend, telling her he was going to buy an Aston Martin. But after ringing lottery operator Camelot the 36-year-old from Gosport was stunned to discover he had mistaken the number 16 for 15 on his 24 Karat Gold scratchcard. The red-faced salesman begged for his job back from Mike Earle, his boss at Fortnums cars dealers in West Street, Fareham, and was re-hired. But facing constant ribbing from his colleagues, Mr Moseley resigned a couple of days later and has now started working for another car dealer.
