  • Two brothers who fleeced taxpayers out of £315,000 in a house-swapping scam involving their wives walked free after a judge said the ‘greatest punishment’ was the loss of their good names.

Mohammed Amin, 40, and his wife, Kauser Aktar, 38, switched homes with Aftab Ahmed, 39, and his wife Sobia Shaheen, 32, so the women could pretend to be tenants and claim housing benefits.

The Pakistani couples – who have 11 children between them – submitted bogus tenancy agreements for 16 years, raking in £314,452.25, Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London heard on Friday.

Amin and Aktar, who have seven children, pocketed £153,000 from the council in Ilford, Essex, and Aktar got £74,000 from the Department of Work and Pensions by pretending to be a single mother.

  1. Typical of these lying, thieving Musloids, it’s just the jizya to them.
    It’s time to do a thorough purge of these good-for-nothing layabouts!
