BRITAIN’S biggest benefit fraudsters who milked the system of more than £1million were last night named and shamed.

BRITAIN’S biggest benefit fraudsters who milked the system of more than £1million were last night named and shamed.

Ministers released their details to send out a strong message to cheats. About £5.2billion a year is lost via fraud and error, with thousands lying to claim handouts.

The 10 worst offenders have been named to expose the myth that benefits fraud is small change. Last week’s Welfare Bill has pledged to crack down on bogus claims and spongers.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said he hoped tough new penalties, including jail, will stop chancers and save up to £1.4bn.

Lady Oriol Bowden and Graham Young

This titled widow, 70, whose late husband was a descendant of the Raleigh cycle empire, helped con taxpayers out of £93,060.

She claimed to be renting a room in her Berkshire home to tenant Graham Young, 67.

When challenged, she claimed the pair shared a bed to keep warm!

But investigators found they had another property in west London.

They were both found guilty, Young on 11 counts of dishonestly failing to declare a change in circumstances, and Bowden on money laundering and dishonestly retaining a wrongful credit.

She got three months’ jail and Young a year.

Jihan Al Hakim

Husband-and-wife Ali Hassan Al Bayaty and Jihan Al Hakim came to Britain from Iraq separately in 1998 claiming asylum.

They were refused, but granted indefinite leave to stay. Mum-of-four Hakim, 44, said she left her husband behind, and he said he had to leave his wife behind too.

The couple bought a house in Wembley and she claimed £95,179 benefits.

When investigators probed a tip-off, she claimed her husband, a self-employed repair man, was her landlord.

But after a six-day trial, she was given 18 months’ jail.

Lynne McCloskey

Cheating McCloskey, 36, from Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, lied that she was jobless.

She claimed a total of £104,691 benefits from 1998 for herself, her partner and two children.

But investigators found that she had been in full-time employment for the entire time.

She attended interview under caution.

However, she declined to make any comment.

McCloskey was eventually sent to jail for six months.

David Wilkinson

He was caught claiming £107,173 in invalidity benefits for 15 years despite secretly working as a cook in Warwick.

Wilkinson, 55, coined in thousands for himself and his children after officials accepted his story that he was too ill to work.

His long-term abuse was eventually identified by a routine data matching search which found out about his kitchen work.

When interviewed he made a “full and frank admission” admitting he had been dishonest throughout and was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.

Annette Morris

Trusted Morris worked as a manager for a charity called People in Action, but hit taxpayers for £106,837.

Morris, 36, of Leeds, claimed incapacity benefit, income support, housing benefit and council tax relief from 1995.

But like so many cheats, she kept quiet after landing the job.

The fraud lasted nearly 15 years. Even when she was found to be working, she continued to lie.

But Morris pleaded guilty at Leeds Crown Court in January and got a suspended jail term plus a 150-hour community service order.

Natalie Carter

She claimed £113,801 in income support, housing and council tax benefits as a single mum with three kids.

But checks were carried out when she bragged about her con and having a husband.

Officials found Carter, 30, from Dagenham, Essex, lived with husband John Tear who was working full-time.

Carter claimed he was a lodger, but her lies soon collapsed.

She was sentenced last September to nine months in jail which was reduced on appeal.

Her husband was jailed for six months.

Angela Aniakor

Devious Aniakor, 36, fed officials a pack of lies to fleece £99,857 from taxpayers.

She claimed she was a jobless, single, mum of three.

But she owned a home in Wembley, north London worth £400,000 and was paying her monthly mortgage in cash.

She had a large number of bank accounts, another home in west London which she rented out and a property in Jamaica.

Scotland Yard tipped off investigators when Aniakor paid £25,000 bail for her brother, despite claiming income support.

She was jailed for 15 months.
Rebecca Powell

Benefits scrounger Rebecca Powell, who owes £3,500 in rent, cannot be evicted because it would breach her human rights.

Town hall chiefs wanted to kick layabout Powell out of her council home.

But judges at the Supreme Court said this would be a breach of the right to “respect for a person’s home”.

The ruling could lead to thousands of tenants refusing to pay.

Miss Powell, 23, was given a home in Cranford, West London, by Hounslow Council in April 2007 because she was homeless.

But a year later the mum-of-four – who was entitled to £15,000 a year in housing benefit – owed more than £3,500.

She was evicted but appealed under the Human Rights Act – and Hounslow Council has now offered her another house.

Amina Muse

Bogus asylum seeker Amina Muse, 38, was paid £250,000 in benefits after claiming she had been gang-raped in Somalia.

However the mum-of-six was in Sweden when the alleged atrocity took place. She also conned Swedish taxpayers out of £50,000.

Muse, of Neasden, north London, was jailed for four-and-a-half years.

She had been claiming benefits including income support, carers allowance, and disability living allowance.John &

Philomena Watkinson

Despite living a luxury lifestyle and owning three overseas homes – each with motorboats – the Watkinsons claimed £118,300 in income support for 10 years.

John, 69, ran companies and book- keeper Philomena, 50, earned £40k.

They lived in a house in the Wirral worth £450,000 and owned properties in Spain, Gibraltar and Turkey.

John was jailed for two years last September and the charges against Philomena were left to lie on file.

The faces of the 10 latest suspected criminals hiding from police on the "Costa del Crime" have been published


Costa del Crime" have been published.
Investigators want the public to help them trace fugitives thought to be on the run in the Costa del Sol region of Spain.
Among those on the latest "most wanted" list are men suspected of murder, child sex offences, kidnapping, robbery and drug smuggling.
They include a string of high-profile British gangland figures linked to organised crime, murder and violence.
One of them is Anthony Fraser, grandson of former violent East End gangland enforcer "mad" Frankie Fraser, and son of a convicted drug smuggler. The 39-year-old Londoner is wanted over the importation of two tonnes of cannabis - worth £5 million - hidden in a lorry load of frozen chicken from Holland in 2009.
Others included Glaswegian William Paterson, 31, wanted over the murder of gangster Kevin "Gerbil" Carroll in January last year. Criminal Carroll, dubbed Scotland's "public enemy number one", was blasted 10 times by masked gunmen outside an Asda superstore in Robroyston, near Glasgow.
Darren O'Flaherty, 36, of Liverpool, is wanted after a lorry driver was held at knifepoint while his load of electronics was stolen in North Yorkshire in 2006. The fugitive is also the prime suspect for the murder of Irishman John O'Neill, who was shot dead in a crowded bar in the Spanish resort of Benalmadena last summer.
Details of all 10 men will be posted by Crimestoppers on a "most wanted" website targeting the region. Several Spanish coastal resorts have been dubbed the "Costa del Crime" since the 1970s because hundreds of wanted British criminals are thought to have fled there.
The Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) and the Spanish police authorities are also involved in the move, codenamed Operation Captura.
Several waves of appeals, first launched in October 2006, have led to the arrest of 38 suspects out of 50 appeals. Anyone with information about those named by Crimestoppers should call 0800 555 111 in the UK or 900 555 111 in Spain.Text may be subject to copyright.This blog does not claim copyright to any such text.

A jury took just an hour to find Nicholas Fabian guilty at Maidstone crown court of attempting to murder Victoria Fabian by booby-trapping her car near their home in Vigo, Kent.

She suffered extensive leg injuries, but her unborn child survived the attack without injury as did her eight-year-old son from a previous relationship, who was also in the Mazda car.

Fabian sent his mistress a text an hour before the explosion in March last year. It read: 'Hello sexy, I love you so much xxx.'"

Colin Howell thought of murder as he held cable over wife in bath

Colin Howell thought of murder as he held cable over wife in bath - Northern Ireland, Local & National - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk: "Killer dentist Colin Howell denied that he tried to electrocute his wife as she had a bath — but admitted the thought crossed his mind as he held an electric cable in his hand during a bitter argument over his infidelity.

It happened in April 1991, just weeks before he murdered wife Lesley and Constable Trevor Buchanan when their marriage was in deep crisis.

He had been using an electric drill to put up a curtain in the bathroom at their home at Knocklayde Park, Coleraine.

His wife had chosen the material and when he returned with the curtain rail from a B&Q store a row broke out after she challenged him about his whereabouts, why he had taken so long and if he had been in contact again with his lover Hazel Stewart.

He told Coleraine Crown Crown he stopped working with the curtain rail when his wife decided to run a bath for herself. He disconnected the drill and put the children to bed after reading them stories"

14 arrests made in drug raids - Bridgend & Maesteg - South Wales Valleys - News - WalesOnline: "FOURTEEN people were arrested and another nine summonsed following an operation by South Wales Police in Bridgend and the Vale.

On Wednesday, February 9, officers seized amphetamine, valium, cannabis and diazepam during Operation Magnitude, as well as £1,375 in cash, as they acted on information from the community.

Detective Inspector Huw Thomas said: “The operation was implemented to proactively target the use and supply of illegal drugs in Bridgend and the Vale of Glamorgan,” he said. “Officers from Neighbourhood Policing Teams, CID, PCSOs and the force tactical unit worked together. The areas targeted are also linked with occurrences of anti-social behaviour which is having a detrimental effect on residents’ quality of life.

“The success of the operation is a reinforcement of our commitment to act upon community intelligence and ensure that we are targeting the right people.”

Officers also gathered evidence which, in the event of charges, will be used to secure confiscation orders. Investigations will be launched with applications being made to freeze any assets owned by suspects who, police believe, may have been living off proceeds of crime."

Bomb expert 'tried to murder wife'

Bomb expert 'tried to murder wife' - News - Montrose Review: "A former Army bomb disposal expert tried to murder his pregnant wife by planting a hand grenade in her car in Kent after she confronted him about his affair, a court has heard.

Victoria Fabian, 33, suffered extensive leg injuries in the blast in a car park behind the home she shared with Nicholas Fabian, also 33, in Highview, Vigo, Kent.

Her eight-year-old son, who was in the car with her, got out of the passenger door unscathed while her unborn child also escaped unharmed, Maidstone Crown Court heard.

Opening the prosecution's case, Graham Reeds QC told jurors that Fabian was a reservist after serving in the Army between 1994 and 2004, and had been called up to do a tour of Afghanistan in January last year.

Mr Reeds said: 'It is the prosecution case against him that during the course of his weapons training he stole a hand grenade from a firing range in North Yorkshire, and on the 5 March last year he used it to booby-trap his wife's car.

'He had the intention of causing an explosion that would kill her, or at the very least, to cause her really serious bodily harm and to endanger her life."

Drug-dealer jailed for Redhill flat murder

BBC News - Drug-dealer jailed for Redhill flat murder: "A man has been jailed for life for murder after he stabbed his best friend in a row over money in a Surrey flat.

Marlon Kelly, 32, from Battersea, south London, was convicted and sentenced at Guildford Crown Court and ordered to serve at least 25 years in jail.

Anthony Kennard Gray, 31, of London, was found injured last May after police were called to Observatory Walk.

Police said Kelly, a drug-dealer, tried to blame the killing on a heroin user who was at the flat to buy drugs.

After the hearing, Det Ch Insp Chris Raymer said: 'Marlon Kelly claimed that Anthony Gray was his best friend yet he subjected him to a brutal and violent attack which left him with a severe stab wound to his neck.

'Instead of trying to help, Kelly left him bleeding to death while he made efforts to cover up his culpability so he could blame the murder on an innocent man.

'Kelly is a ruthless individual who has continued to deny any responsibility for the murder and has not shown a shred of remorse for what he has done to his friend.'"

Accused executed victim he thought was gang rival

Accused executed victim he thought was gang rival - thestar.com: "An associate of the Malvern Crew executed a teenager in broad daylight on a quiet Scarborough street believing he was a member of the rival Galloway Boys, a Crown attorney told a jury Monday.

And after fatally shooting Simeon Peter, 19, on Jan. 8, 2004, Warren Abbey had a teardrop tattoo inscribed on his cheek, below his right eye, sometime between May 2 and June 1, 2004, Julie Battersby said during her opening address.

In the context of a street gang, an expert will testify that a possible meaning of the tattoo is that it is a signature for killing a rival, the prosecutor told jurors.

A Malvern gang member is also expected to testify that when he asked Abbey about the tattoo in 2004, Abbey confessed to shooting Peter, Battersby said.

Abbey, 25, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

Battersby told the jury the killing came at a time of escalating violence between the Malvern Crew and Galloway Boys, two street gangs based in Scarborough."

£50m cannabis smuggling gang convicted

£50m cannabis smuggling gang convicted (From Oxford Mail): "Barry Haydon, 68, of Oxford Road, Burford, and Ivan Marshall, 26, of Queen Street, Eynsham, were part of a gang that brought in an estimated 16 tonnes of the drug.

Yesterday, the pair were convicted of conspiracy to import the Class B drug following a three-week trial at Isleworth Crown Court.

Dutch brothers Nicolaas and Miquel Sempel were also found guilty of the same charge.

The plot – which used a textile company as cover – was revealed when UK Border Agency staff found 645 kilograms of cannabis, worth £2m, hidden inside a lorry at Harwich docks in Essex.

Bags of the drug were concealed inside boxes of used clothing sent from Holland in March last year.

UK Border Agency investigators learned that the gang had used the business to import about 30 other loads into the UK in 2009 and early last year, by creating false invoices for onward sale of the clothing to try to cover their tracks.

Nicolaas and Miquel Sempel were arrested when they arrived to collect the load from a freight agent at the port, using a van hired by Marshall, with Haydon as a named driver."

Woman stands trial for double murder to which ex-lover confessed

Woman stands trial for double murder to which ex-lover confessed | UK news | guardian.co.uk: "A woman has gone on trial accused of murdering two people – including her husband – two months after her ex-lover was jailed for the crime.

Hazel Stewart, 47, is accused of killing Trevor Buchanan, 32, and Lesley Howell, 31, who died in a fume-filled car in 1991.

Her former lover Colin Howell, 51, the female victim's husband, was jailed for 21 years in December after pleading guilty to the crime.

Stewart's trial was delayed so the defence could study a 'lengthy statement' that her co-accused Howell, a former dentist, gave about the killings, in Castlerock, Northern Ireland, which were initially thought to have been the result of a suicide pact.

Stewart arrived at Coleraine crown court on Monday flanked by her son and daughter. Her second husband, David Stewart, walked a few feet behind.

After a jury was sworn in for her trial, she was granted bail. Jurors have been sent home and the trial proper is due to open on Tuesday."

More than one murder a week is committed by a thug on bail

More than one murder a week is committed by a thug on bail | Mail Online: "More than one murder every week is committed by a criminal who could have been locked up, it emerged last night.

Shocking figures show how 60 deaths could have been prevented if the criminal had been remanded in custody rather than released on bail after their first offence.

It will re-ignite the bitter row over Justice Secretary Ken Clarke’s proposals to slash the prison population by 3,000. A key part of the plan is to grant bail to even more suspects – both adults and juveniles – than is currently the case.

Critics fear this will lead to the number of murders by suspects on bail increasing further.

The Government does not routinely publish information about the criminal background of murder suspects. But Freedom of Information requests show suspects on bail represent one in 14 of all those who face the charge. Nationwide, that is the equivalent of 60 killings."

A team of 40 police officers targeted houses in Cromer Street, in the Clifton area of the city, during simultaneous evening raids this week.

The officers carried out drugs searches on 15 people and have arrested seven men and two women on suspicion of being involved in the supply of Class A substances.

Thursday's raids brought the number of drugs warrants used by Clifton Safer Neighbourhood Team to 80 since July 2009, with Sergeant Martin Metcalfe praising local residents for raising their concerns about drug-dealing in their community and vowing to continue the 'get-tough' approach.

'My team will not tolerate anybody supplying or misusing drugs in Clifton,' he said."

Scottish criminals 'only jailed after 40 convictions'

Scottish criminals 'only jailed after 40 convictions "Iain Gray produced figures at First Minister’s Questions showing six offenders were sentenced to their first jail sentence last year despite having between 31 and 40 previous convictions.
Thousands more were only given their first prison sentence after committing up to 30 crimes, according to the official statistics, which were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
Mr Gray warned the situation will only get worse as Alex Salmond’s SNP administration has introduced new laws creating a presumption against judges imposing jail sentences of less than three months.
Under the reforms, criminals will instead be forced to carry out community service but the Labour leader said four out of ten of offenders handed this punishment do not complete it.
Mr Gray said 6,000 criminals who received sentences of less than three months last year would now be freed but Kenny MacAskill, the Scottish Justice Minister, had referred to them as “daft laddies”."

Pet crematorium owner Emma Bent pocketed cash and dumped pets in ditches

Classic Bronze Cremation Urns for Pets - SmallPet crematorium owner Emma Bent pocketed cash and dumped pets in ditches | Mail Online: "Her upmarket pet crematorium service promised owners a dignified send-off for their beloved animals.

But instead of cremating them, Emma Bent left the bodies of the pets rotting in fields and sheds.

She was jailed for eight months yesterday for what a judge described as a ‘sinister and despicable’ fraud.

Her deception came to light after a walker stumbled across the decomposing bodies of four dogs. The RSPCA used their microchips to trace them back to Bent.

It is feared thousands of grieving pet owners could have been exploited by the 35-year-old who ran Peak Pet Cremations in Heage, Derbyshire.

Bent, who charged £140 for the service and caskets containing the ashes of the pets, carried out around 3,500 cremations, mostly of dogs and cats.

The website boasted that the company offered a ‘caring and understanding service at a sad time’."

WikiLeaks cables: Britain pledged millions to lawless Somali region linked to pirate gangs

WikiLeaks cables: Britain pledged millions to lawless Somali region linked to pirate gangs - Telegraph: "Foreign Office officials surprised their US counterparts by announcing a “180-degree shift” in British policy towards the north-eastern region of Puntland, whose leaders declared independence in 1998.
Jonathan Allen, the Foreign Office diplomat responsible for East Africa, told the Americans in July, 2009, that Britain planned to support the regional government despite being “under no illusion about who they were dealing with and the connection of the Puntland authorities to piracy”.
The Foreign Office changed course after the president of Puntland met officials in London and “said all the right things” on issues such as maritime security, Mr Allen admitted.
The new policy of engagement was expanded in January, 2010, when British diplomats disclosed that a portion of a £9 million grant for Somalia had been earmarked to support authorities in Puntland and Somaliland, another self-declared state.
Britain previously refused to recognise the autonomy of either region but had come to the conclusion that weak local institutions were hampering efforts to tackle terrorism and illegal immigration."

Anni accused faces another rap - Crime & Courts - IOL | Breaking News | South Africa News | World News | Sport | Business | Entertainment | IOL.co.za: "The state says it has an “overwhelmingly strong” case against one of the men accused of murdering honeymooner Anni Dewani in Cape Town last year.

And, the Wynberg Regional Court heard yesterday, an attempted murder charge against Mziwamadoda Qwabe dating to 2009 would be reinstated.

State advocate Adrian Mopp yesterday read into the court record an affidavit made by the investigating officer in the Anni Dewani case, Captain Paul Hendrikse.

Mopp was addressing the court during Qwabe’s bail application.

Mopp told the court that in a confession on November 18, Qwabe had said that he and Xolile Mngeni and shuttle taxi driver Zola Tongo were hired by Dewani’s husband, Shrien, to kill Anni and make it seem as if it was a botched hijacking.

Qwabe had earlier told the court that he intended pleading not guilty to the murder, and alleged that he had been beaten at the time of his arrest in November."

The balaclava-sporting gangs were able to blend into the crowd because so many students had also covered their faces to avoid being identified by officers
The yobs said they attended the protests with the express intention of mugging people, and took advantage of the police's kettling tactics to corner students where they were enclosed and could not escape.
As well as cash they stole purses, laptops and cameras from students protesting against rising tuition fees and cuts to the Education Maintenance Allowance.
One gang member told the online TV station VBS: 'My gang, we're in it for the money."

Six members of London gang guilty of murder

: Six members of London gang guilty of murder: "SIX MEMBERS of a south London gang have been found guilty of the murder of 22-year-old Ezra Mills.
The group of five men, including Marcel Mason, 21, Trevelle Williams, 18, Dwayne Lock, 21, Robert Saint, 20, David Smith, 22 and a 16-year-old boy, will be sentenced later today (Feb 3) for their part in the brutal slaying of Ezra last year.
On the night they murdered Mills, the group had already fired a pump action shotgun at members of a rival group who dared to enter what they considered to be 'their' estate. They came across said rivals later in the day outside a convenience shop and fired two shots towards them, but both missed.
Fired up, the group returned to their estate where they were heard boasting about the failed shooting attempt.
Ezra, who had been an innocent bystander in a fight involving 21-year-old Mason the previous night, returned to the south London estate where the boys had congregated after celebrating his 22nd birthday, which was the previous day, with family.
Within an hour of his return, Ezra was dead. He had been shot in the chest at close range with a pump action shotgun and was pronounced dead at the scene."
