Woman found guilty of benefit fraud ordered to pay back £70,000

Echo: Benefit cheat ordered to pay back £70,000 Benefit cheat ordered to pay back £70,000

A WOMAN was ordered to pay back almost £70,000 in falsely claimed benefits at Basildon Crown Court last month.

Suzanne Rollisson, 47, of Hornby Avenue, Westcliff, claimed to be single, accruing £69,619.13 in income support, housing benefit, council tax benefit and tax credit fraud.

Miss Rollisson, also received a 22-week suspended prison sentence and was ordered to spend 25 days in education and training.

A joint investigation between the Department for Work and Pensions and Southend Council found that Miss Rollisson had in fact been living with her partner for six years, while fraudulently claiming to be single.

Southend councillor for corporate services, Andrew Moring, said: “Benefit fraud is not a victimless crime; it affects all council tax payers and those in receipt of council services.

“We take any attempt to abuse the benefits system very seriously and those who do will find the penalties can be much worse than simply repaying illegally-obtained benefits, as this case shows.”

Between December 2007 and March 2013 Miss Rollisson obtained more than £20,000 in housing benefit, around £3,400 in council tax benefit, £34,000 in tax credits and almost £10,500 in income support.

Anyone with suspicions about benefit cheats should call the Counter Fraud Team on 01702 215254.

Suspended sentence? I trust that she will never get a bean from the State until such time as it is all repaid - but somehow I doubt it.

How much do you want to bet..?

She took from taxpayers what she wasn't entitled to.

Some take from taxpayers what they dont need. ie in 'super' pensions

what drops into my bank a/c every 4 weeks.

Lovely jubbly. The best bit is, I don't even need it !

Trebles all round.*

Trebles all round indeed for some...some then become a burden on the NHS for treatment because of too many trebles?

Im not sure which is worse..benefit fraud by those who might be needy or over-indulgent pensions for those who dont need them..

That's against people's human rights. And I wouldn't say she is scum. Maybe she was just having financial problems?

Well I don't pay any tax anyway. I make my money through crime and getting benefits. But you have a point. Seems as if they are handing money out to anyone.

"As for taking me seriously...you did didn't you?"

No one else does, so why should he?

As for my pension - I earned every penny. What I choose to do (or not to do) with it, is my business.

BTW, I commuted a huuuuuge lump sum (Tax free) which was nice.

You shouldn't be so envious - does you no good.

For anyone unfortunate enough to get caught, there is always the taxpayer funded benefit fraud allowance. GBP 1166 a month for 5 years and we have paid it back for her (less interest ofcourse).

I thought everyone with a pension was "entitled" to a tax free lump sum at the end of it.

Goodness, so she gets 25 days SS and sent to school but has 'enjoyed' £70k that wasn't hers... probably ordered to pay it back at £1 a week.
Not bad is it?
jeepers.. If she went into a bank and stole £70k she'd be in jail..... doesn't make sense.

Your opinion to me is worthless really for reasons you know why...and the fact that asbo and indeed you reply to my posts (you usually when I challenge your racial slanted posts) shows you take my post seriously enough to warrant a reply.. Im sure many reading your gloating of enquiring large sums of money off the taxpayer in times like these will be rather sickening to some.. your gloating and indeed your avarice is truly revolting..especiall y when other more deserving do not receive the same sacred cash cow occupation pension.
I thought everyone with a pension was "entitled" to a tax free lump sum at the end of it.
You have annoyed a few people...you've been thumbed down..and not by me..lol
Is this the same ThisYear who stated they did not care about thumbs up / down? Go on, thumb me down, you always do.

Yes it is...whats that got to do with my mentioning you being thumbed down?

Im not really into the thumb up or down thing as it is too easy for the mentally lazy to express their opinion.. without really expressing their opinion..but as all should be aware of my opinion of you, and as you request it, Ill thumb you down.. but dont make a habit of requesting things from me. You hear?

How does someone pay back 70 grand if they have been cheating for years?
She could pay back what she owes by getting a job! Or maybe two. No benefits ever again also. People who fraudently claim benefits should never be able to claim again. Of course these benefit cheats have to be caught first! That's why I hope anybody who knows of a benefit cheat phones the benefit fraud line. This is completely confidential.

If only politician watch dogs did the same we would save thousands 'stolen' by MPs.

I do not buy this, a couple who are of pension age get a guaranteed income of £220+ per week to live on.
