He didn’t see that coming! Clairvoyant jailed for his part in £170,000 disability benefits swindle after being filmed working out in GYM!!!

A clairvoyant who swindled almost £70,000 in disability benefit by claiming he could barely walk was jailed after he was filmed working out in a gym.

Spiritualist Timothy Abbott, 53, conned the taxpayer out of thousands of pounds in disability, council tax and housing benefits along with his wife Jeanette, 46.

The couple pocketed a total of £170,000 during their 16-year scam, including Mr Abbott taking £35,496 in incapacity benefit and £22,848 in disability living allowance.

The medium was filmed lifting heavy dumbbells, using an exercise bike, rowing machine and running on a treadmill and pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to notify the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) of a change in circumstances.

Mr Abbott also admitted conning HMRC out of £9,532 by failing to pay income tax or national insurance contributions. Full story...
