Loopy loophole?

Why do tax officials not require a visual check of a child's birth certificate before paying child tax credits!?!

How many months does it take to realise that benefit claims for sixteen children sounds excessive, even Karen Matthews only has seven children!?!

"This case is the result of many months of intense and thorough work by a dedicated team of tax credit investigation officers, determined to see that these fraudsters were brought to justice." - Sarah Bamford, of HM Revenue and Customs.

Would the fraudsters have escaped justice if they had not been so greedy and only claimed tax credits for three children!?!

I blame Gordon...
