FOREIGN IMMIGRANT FRAUDSTERS JAILED OVER £1 MILLION INSURANCE SCAM – Why is it that almost every time you hear of a fraudulent scam foreign immigrants are involved? I guess it’s because they know the UK is such a soft touch.
Here we go again… Elina Jaksone (Latvian) and partner Gagik Manucharyan (Cypriot) have both been found guilty of running a car insurance scam that cheated honest motorists out of £1 million and the taxpayer out of £340,000 as they did not report their earning to the Inland Revenue.
As with most of these cases these two lived a life of luxury from their illicit scam. They lived in a beautiful home, drove luxury cars and took a number of exotic holidays – who says crime doesn’t pay?
The Car Insurance Scam was easy; they simply offered cut-price insurance deal using false details and in a time when motorists are being forced to pay higher premium rates it is not surprising the scam worked so well; the honest motorist simply wanted to save some cash.
Unfortunately any of these motorists finding themselves involved in an accident would quickly discover that they had no cover at all.
Over a seven year period they raked in approximately £1 million and not one penny was ever paid in tax. According to the Inland Revenue they should have paid £340,000 on these earnings.
Just when you think it’s over there is more to this tale. Again most of us are aware of the problems of welfare abuse by foreigners living in the UK and as much as these two were raking in on the car insurance scam it simply wasn’t enough and the welfare system was an easy target.
Elina Jaksone also defrauded the welfare system out of £82,000 as she claimed child benefit to which she was not entitled. Not satisfied with that Jaksone also used her own mother’s details so that she could falsely claim pension credits and the winter fuel allowance.
On sentencing Judge James O’Mahony called the couple greedy and selfish and has ordered that both be deported once they have served their sentence. Both have been jailed for 5 years each over the scam and benefits fraud.
Like any criminals they always have some card to play and in this case their lawyers pleaded with the Judge not to imprison them as they would ‘miss their children’; the Judge rightfully dismissed their pleas stating that this misery was self inflicted.
When I came across this news article I read it and then headed to the comments section and was surprised that I am not alone in my assertion for capital punishment; with many comments stating that these two should receive the ‘birch’, have their assets stripped from them and then deported immediately – most comments that I read failed to see why the taxpayer should fund their time in prison.
While I and many others will commend the Judge the reality is that these two are unlikely to be deported. It’s almost a certainty that their Human Rights will be violated and therefore granted to stay – they’ll probably end up living in luxury accommodation for the rest of their lives at the expense of the taxpayer.
This simply goes to show you what a liberal left-wing society creates; which is nothing more than a lawless society where crime does pay and pays handsomely.
