Sweden calling

A 40-year-old Iraqi woman has now been caught after she fraudulently received a large amount in Swedish benefits while living in her home country.

The woman did not report to the authorities that she moved to Iraq and continued to receive Swedish social benefits.

The offence took place from summer 2013 to summer 2017. Investigators at the Swedish Social Insurance Fund were sent a 66-page document about the suspect.

She reported incorrect information and received housing allowance, parental allowance, child allowance and childbirth allowance, a total of 521,037 Swedish crowns (around 50,000 euros), despite returning to Iraq,” says police spokesman Richard Glantz.

It is currently unknown how the woman will repay her fraudulently received benefits.

I think we can guess.
