A TSR FA has been convicted of fraud in the UK, this is the second time this FA has appeared before the courts for the same crime. I am still awaiting more details on the outcome of the first trial, which took place in January of last year; lack of information on the outcome prevented me from reporting on this at the time. Thomas flew out to the UK in the same week as the first trial took place, whether his flight was in fact connected to the trial is unknown. Details of the outcome still remain sketchy.
The same FA, already famed for allegedly stealing meshes of plant pots from MTS and selling them on TSR, has continued to commit the same crime of defrauding the UK government and has been brought to justice once more.
The fraud took place when this FA officially claimed that she was not working. She Shake and Shafted the UK government into paying her full welfare benefits by claiming she did not work and cannot work in any capacity due to ill health and has no other income, when in fact she was earning a set payment from her work at TSR and was paid $800 per month, which has risen up to $1000 per month. This fraud has been going on since Jan 2, 2006, so even at the lower rate of earnings I calculate she owes the UK tax payers over $50,000 for the period ending March 2011 when she was convicted. She has been ordered to return the money she has stolen, although it is not clear if she has to pay back the full amount, I imagine she would have to. She also has to pay the court fees and complete work in the community by cleaning public toilets.
She is still working as an FA, and still earning her fixed monthly payments, so either she has taken a cut in payments from the welfare system, or she is heading for her third fraud conviction.
I wonder how many other FA’s at TSR are committing the same crime; many countries all over the world have welfare systems just waiting to be abused by the greedy and the lazy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unemployment_benefits Such benefits are paid for by the taxes of hard working citizens, and it is sad to see this system being abused.
This shows TSR’s obvious disregard for the law by illegally employing workers and failing to obtain and register a social security number from any of its employees. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_identification_number
Which brings me to tax, how many FA’s, or indeed TSR themselves are paying tax on their earnings? Not many. For reference, this page shows the Swedish tax system including business tax rates, click on the list on the left of the page to see the tax rates in other countries. How much are TSR and its FA’s stealing from you?
I have a feeling this will not be the last fraud conviction we hear about.
