It is estimated that £2 billion is stolen from the public by
benefit cheats every year. That adds up to £80 per year for every
household in Britain. Our fraud team is working towards stopping
that money being lost but we need your help. If you think someone
is getting benefits that they are not entitled to then please tell
If you had an extra £2 billion for local services what would you
do with it?
- Spend it on our schools?
- Spend it on our hospitals?
- Help increase the number of police on the streets?
- Reduce your council tax bills?
- You won't get that choice because benefit cheats have spent it
