2 Men guilty off £186,000 fraud, fined...£1

(Bradford) I've often said that the law is an ass in the Uk and here is one such example. Israr Hussain and Shazad Shad fleeced legal firms across the country with bogus road accident claims over a three-year period.

Israr Hussain

 Shazad Shad 

They stole the identities of elderly people in care homes and used the BBC Children in Need appeal’s bank account details as part of the scam.Yesterday, a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing at Bradford Crown Court was told that the duo benefited to the tune of £167,246 during the spree.But Judge Peter Benson could only impose a nominal order of £1 each on Hussain, 32, and 31-year-old  Shazad Shad . He told them:
“I am satisfied that you have benefited from criminal conduct to the extent of £167,246.
“The only reasonable asset in each of your cases is £1. I make a confiscation order in each case of £1. It has to be paid within 28 days.”
Yup crime pays in the UK.
