(Daily Express)   If you're trying to rip off welfare by claiming your long-time live-in boyfriend is actually your landlord, make sure he doesn't tattoo all your kids' names on his body, because landlords rarely do that for tenants   (express.co.uk) divider line 12

Well, nothing to do but completely dismantle the social safety net because some tried to cheat the system. It was nice while it lasted.

"This is not someone who is a professional fraudster,"

Uh...what? Is she maintaining her 'amateur' status so she can scam in the Olympics? If she obtained money through her scam, isn't that the very definition of a 'professional' scammer?

FTFA: Defence counsel, Phillip Tully, said Tracey was a "respected member of the community" who took full responsibility for her actions.

Non-UK Farkers may care to note that "respected member of the community" in Liverpool equates roughly to "habitual criminal".

What is with the profoundly poor tattooing the names of their children on their bodies? Is it like crib notes? Do they forget the names and/or birthdates of their offspring? I have no tattoos, but think they can be beautiful. So this is not a 'tattoos are trashy' post. I think they can be a legitimate form of art uniwuely displayed on skin. What I don't understand is the need to memorialize the name of someone you can't or won't fully support financially. Seems to make more sense to me to apply the money spent for a tattoo to the care of the child. Or, in other words, I don't spend money on art -- whether good or bad -- when my children need food, clothing, or shelter.

Fark_Guy_Rob: I really don't see the legal distinction here.

When I was younger I purchased a house.  I paid for it.  It was my house.
I later became a live-in landlord, when someone else moved in.  It was still my house.  They paid me rent.  I didn't consider us roommates, we didn't share the house equally, they rented a room from me.

I later started sleeping with said tenant.  It wasn't prostitution - she still paid me rent.  Did I magically because 'not' her landlord at that point?

Later we got engaged.  She still paid rent.
I still owned the house.


The problem is that he is the father of her kids. I'm sure she was getting government assistance based on the fact that she said the father of the kids wasn't paying support and she didn't know where to find him. If he is her landlord, then she knew where to find him and should have filed for child support from him instead of getting it from the government.

I feel that getting tattoos of their tenants children's names is what separates the good landlords from the great landlords.

BBtB: Technically landlord and boyfriend are not mutually exclusive titles. Technically.


Yeah. He could always say that he was renting to his ex o make sure his kids had someplace to stay. But I'm also sure that the amount of assistance money she received was based on how much child support he provided, and I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that she claimed he gave none. So even that plan would blow up.
