A new twist on cheating the benefit system

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5440031/Gang-used-Eastern-European-slaves-benefits-money.html

Romany gang trafficked slaves into UK before using them to claim benefits which they pocketed themselves, a court has heard. 

Homeless people were picked up by associates of the Rafael family on the streets of Slovakia and the Czech Republic and brought to Newcastle where they were forced to live in cellars or sleep several to a bed in cramped rooms.

The Rafaels allegedly arranged National Insurance numbers for the EU nationals and used them to claim benefits, which they kept for themselves, prosecutors claim. 

Slaves, who changed hands for £200 to £300, were fed stale bread and goulash while the family of nine enjoyed expensive alcohol and food, one of their alleged victims told a jury.

The family also claimed housing benefit and one had an SUV car under the Government's mobility scheme, a court was told.


The establishment really needs to get a grip on the Bennie system.

Gotta love those Roma, there is no system in the world they can't find a way round, they have literally centuries of experience in thinking this way and there is no way any rules you can think of will defeat them. Best to just first show them the door then push them through it.

It`s not just the roma ,i can remember a case costing millions ,it was a WTC scamone basically some got hold of the details of all the employees of a major post office sorting depot ,they then used those details to claim WTC for all those people ,something like six million was paid into the same accountant for something like 300+ different claims (HMRC system only CrossRef NI numbers and addresses )  the fraud was only uncovered when HMRC started to ask for over-payments back off the posties 

This put and end (not sure if was permanent ) to claiming WTC online and the money from that single account was last seen heading to Nigeria via direct debit on a monthly basis  

EDIT 

feck trying to find a link via google for the above i,i can`t believe what im seeing

£17BILLION: That's how much tax credit fraud and blunders have cost Britain over a 10-year period 

  • More than £23million a week is being handed out in error in tax credits 
  • Payments given to people who have either lied or given wrong details 
  • Gideon is expected to target tax credits in the next Budget

Jesus wept and they say there is no money. That’s just the fraud.  How much is it actually costing per week?

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6151921/Birmingham-accounts-HALF-10-highest-claiming-areas-unemployment-benefits-UK.html
      Birmingham accounts for half of the top 10 highest claiming unemployment benefits areas in the UK, according to official figures. 
      Five areas of the city feature prominently among a league table of constituencies with the highest proportion of claimants.
      Birmingham Ladywood headed the list - with 11.9 per cent of the economically active population receiving unemployment handouts.
      Neighbouring Hodge Hill was second with 11.1 per cent, while Erdington was fourth with 9.1 per cent and Perry Bar fifth with 9 per cent.
      Birmingham Hall Green came in sixth place - with only Hartlepool in third breaking up the city's dominance of the table.
       
      i wonder if this could be cross referenced to anything else?  Anyhow, full U.K. map below

      A Scottish council is planning to provide school meals 365 days a year to children from low income families.
      North Lanarkshire Council said its proposal would help tackle "holiday hunger".
      The "Food 365" programme would cover the 175 days of the year when lunches are not served in school.
       
      two questions (there will be more...)
      what are these parents spending all the benefits on, if not on food? what are they doing with all their spare time that they cannot produce healthy, nutritious food from cheap, fresh ingredients? they would be far better spending the money on cooking classes for parents. Sadly though, they will probably not be able to find people with the skills to run them.

      Details of people on state benefits could be handed to energy firms so they can give them special rates.
      The plan, under consideration by the government, is intended as a new approach to help people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.
       
      they are not going to do this out of the goodness of their hearts are they.  Be prepared for a massive hike in utility bills taxpayers. 
      Ffs.
