Would you believe it? Yes, particularly when the DWP admit DLA (the scammers benefit of choice) hasn’t been checked for fraud for 10 years…..yes, a decade since this much abused payment was assessed for levels of fakery!
More money (£1.1bn) is now stolen by scumbags than is allocated to the entire Foreign Office budget. It’s incredible, but no doubt welfare apologists will claim it’s a miniscule amount or will try and deflect by waffling on about tax avoidance/evasion – an issue they don’t seem to care about until benefit scrounging is mentioned.
£30m a week is thieved by bogus welfare claimants and the National Audit Office has again given the DWP’s accounts department the bum’s rush by refusing to sign off their accounts. Most telling is the NAO’s warning that fraud might be (it definitely is!) higher than estimated, and the £100 a second falsely trousered by the feckless is described by them as “astounding.”
This blog has said for years that DLA/ESA fraud levels are incredible and yet again here’s more evidence to prove this.
We’ve helped to rightly demonise fake sickness benefit scroungers and they’re now despised by the honest hardworking taxpayers, but, like Olympic drug cheats, these vermin find new ways to fiddle the system, meaning we’re always playing catchup.
It’s a game we can all play though. All of us know of a dodgy DLA/ESA claimant and none of us should shy away from reporting them to the DWP hotline.
Remember, it’s better to report an innocent claimant and have them exonerated than not informing on a faker who’ll continue to drain the country’s finances.
NEVER HESITATE TO REPORT
