For two years, Shashi Bacheta and her partner sailed halfway round the world on their 70ft yacht, sun-kissed and living the lives of millionaires.
Able to indulge in her passion for scuba diving, Bacheta and Jeffrey Coles occasionally docked their £100,000 yacht the Kismet, drawing admiring glances from passers-by and hooking up with fellow travellers.
What the onlookers did not know, however, was that the couple were funding their trip by illegally claiming more than £50,000 in Government benefits.
OK, now we\’ve shown that there are indede some, we would like to work out how many.
If it\’s 0.01% of what is paid out then there\’s really not much more to be done. That sort of error rate is pretty good in fact. But what if it\’s 10%? Or 30%? I have no idea what the real estimates are….anyone want to have a try enlightening us?
