Mother shaved off son's hair and eyebrows in cancer scam to claim £55,000 benefits

A shameless mother shaved her son's head and EYEBROWS to fool officials into thinking he had cancer so she could claim £55,000 in benefits.

The woman, from the Stroud area of Gloucestershire, pretended her son was on chemotherapy for three years, starting when her son was four years old.

But now she is facing prison after she admitted child cruelty, fraud and forgery.

Prosecutor Lisa Hennessy said: "The Crown say the defendant claimed that her child had cancer and shaved his head and eyebrows and claimed her other children had various disabilities never diagnosed."

In total, the woman claimed £34,396 in disability living allowances and £18,734 in child cancer benefits despite her son, who is now nine, being in good health.

The woman, who cannot be named to protect the identity of her son, also admitted fraudulently obtaining disability living allowance for her daughter by claiming she was ill.

The mother will be sentenced in November, pending psychiatric reports.

Can someone explain how the hell this woman was able to do this and get away with it for years ?

How do you claim disability or terminal illness benefits without a doctors say so, where was her proof and why wasnt she inundated with red tape to get anything they needed like most people who care for someone with disabilities.

I just dont get how this happened and how she got away with it for so long, poor kid, geez xxx
