TOTTY Benefits COLLECTION cheat must pay back £16,000
DEVIL INSIDE BABE TOPLESS
A BENEFITS cheat who claimed she could barely walk was filmed climbing hills and zooming down a water slide on holiday.
Tina Attanasio, 51, was jailed for 10 weeks in December last year but brought back to court this week for a Proceeds of Crime Hearing.
Fiddling Attanasio claimed she couldn’t cope without crutches – but was framed by her own family holiday videos showing her splashing around in her swimwear.
She was caught when a former lover gave the film to benefits investigators after they split up.
Mother Attanasio admitted wrongly claiming £19,000 of disability living allowance – after benefits fraud investigators obtained the happy holiday video of her summer break in the South of France.
It showed her climbing hills, bounding down steep steps and whizzing down a steep flume in a water park in a red bikini.
Attanasio was ordered to repay £16,403 - and told by a judge she had six months to hand over the dosh.
