"Caseworker Lauren Wainwright admitted the frauds – which took place via numerous transfers over a period of several months in 2017 and 2018 – at Blackpool Magistrates Court earlier this month. Wainwright, of Thornton in Lancashire, is due to be sentenced at Preston Crown Court next month."

It will be interesting to know the outcome of this case, as you read people are getting prison sentences for stealing food just to survive. :sick:

Also what an example this "Caseworker" (Work Roach) has set for her claimants! :dry:

Given how harsh they have been with average Joe when it comes to benefit fraud I expect no less than a lengthy prison sentence but don't be surprised if he escapes prison time as we all know white collar crime of this nature often gets treated differently by the courts. :angry:

I was wondering when Ms. Wainwright come out of jail. And if she isn’t able to get a job (let alone a "£18,000-a-year job at the Department for Work and Pensions."), will she have to sign on the Dole :evil: . And therefore go on the Univ-Credit, and see what is like on the other side of the desk.

only one year not nearly enough :angry:

But id be willing to forgo jail time for her if we could lock her up in stocks for a week outside her job centre while the government provided daily baskets of rotten fruit for all her victims to throw at her.

wonder how long it would take people to start painting rocks like fruit :woohoo:

He wont even do a Year, 1 Year = 6 months in jail + 6 months Probation, He will also have to pay Court Costs, It is very unlikley He got Any "Legal Aid" so will have to also pay that, He still got away far to Lightly.
I hope he has to pay back his "Ill gotten gains as well" so with luck will also loose his House, B)
He will then discover how many years before he gets a Council House......If Ever. B)
Oh dont we all feel sorry for him :woohoo: ....NOT.

A couple of points here. The amount of claimants to whom are having to wait weeks/months for there Universal Credit payment, yet this woman (Lauren Wainwrigh), was able to fast track payments to herself! Just shows you what these people at the DWP can do if they want to! :angry:

And I was wondering what her life inside will be like when the other inmates finds out scamming the UC she did. Just think if you had been made homeless and have to steal to feed yourself. And they end up in prison due to late payment of your U-C! :blink:

Quote from the BBC article: After her arrest at work, she told police: "All the other trainees laughed about how easy it was, and I was the idiot that tried it."

I hope this little `loophole` if it was one, has been subsequently closed. Or was it simply that these `trainees` had access to NI numbers and knew they could be used in this way? And here we are as claimants being told by work coaches to make sure we have our details all over the shop on jobsites and CV`s and social media sites. Too much personal information can mean anyone with the right means could wipe you out.

Come to think of it, DWP letters always include people`s NI numbers. :dry:
