GRENFELL FRAUDSTERS JAILED

GRENFELL FRAUDSTERS JAILED

Postby Cannydc » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:08 pm

Two illegal immigrants have been jailed for fraudulently claiming £125,000 in relief costs by falsely posing as victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Elaine Douglas and Tommy Brooks were put up in hotels after claiming they lived on the 19th floor of the block.

They were caught when council workers discovered their flat did not exist, Isleworth Crown Court heard.

The pair, both aged 51, pleaded guilty to two counts of fraud by false representation.

They also admitted one count of obtaining leave to remain in the UK by deception.

Brooks was sentenced to three years and three months in jail, while Douglas was sentenced to three years.

Utter scum. No other way to describe them.

Good, but how are people able to pretend they lived at Grenfell anyway? Does nobody know who was supposed to be living there?

Depends on who you ask. Neighbours might know, but many keep themselves to themselves. Privately owned flats can be let privately. And then illegally sublet in some cases. The last census was 7 years ago, and not everyone puts themselves in the electoral register...

They should be prosecuted for not putting themselves on the register then. If people are claiming they lived there and there's no record of them, it should be assumed that they didn't live there.

They are illegal immigrants, so wouldn't register to vote, and didn't live there anyway.

And they were discovered as frauds and prosecuted, jailed and will be deported.

Not sure what else you wanted or expected to happen.

She probably expected them to be hung, drawn and quartered :shake head:

People like that should be burned at the stake.
