Benefit Fraud

by msecadm4921

Nicholas Paul Rogers, proprietor of 24/7 Security at Horningtops, was prosecuted at Liskeard Magistrates Court for delaying and providing false earnings information in respect of a claim for housing and council tax benefit.

On October 4 Rogers pleaded guilty to the offence and was fined £170 and ordered to pay £50 towards costs.

Councillor Hugh Francis, Caradon’s cabinet member with the Improving Service Delivery portfolio, said: “This is the first time that Caradon has prosecuted an employer for delaying or obstructing an authorised officer investigating benefit fraud and shows just how seriously we take these matters.  Benefit fraud costs every family in the country £80 a year, and we simply won’t tolerate it.”
