“Enfield Council takes benefit fraud extremely seriously, and we will always work with our partners to uncover and prosecute anyone we find who is on the fiddle.

“The message to anyone in Enfield thinking about fraudulently claiming benefits is always the same: ‘don’t do it because it is not a matter of if we catch you but when.’”
