Benefit fraudster jailed

A benefit fraudster who hoovered up thousands of pounds of taxpayers money has been jailed.
Denise Dyson (her name was Dyson so she hoovered up benefits, get it) one half of a married couple who unlawfully acquired more than £45,000 between them – was jailed for nine months at Manchester Crown Court.
dysonDyson, of Newland Avenue, Pemberton, failed to notify the Department of Work and Pensions of her marriage to husband Terence in 2001 and that she was living with him. Between 2006 and 2011 she claimed income support as a single occupant plus Council Tax benefit from the council and was overpaid £22,000 in total.
I love this bit, Mrs Dyson did not inform her family that she was due in court and a missing persons report was filed in her name when she did not return home after her hearing.
Dyson fooled authorities by claiming her benefits under her maiden name of Denise Anglesea. She had also received a previous conviction in 2010 for working while in receipt of benefits, unlawfully claiming more than £9,000, and received a 12-month Community Order.
Earlier this year Terence Dyson escaped a custodial sentence after pleading guilty to three theft offences. The 65-year-old stole £24,000 worth of plumbing equipment from Bryn-based Norstrom Group during his time as its divisional manager. He received a 10-month prison sentence suspended for a year, 200 hours’ unpaid work and was hit with a curfew.
