    Fraudsters "scamming" Universal Credit



    Tens of millions of pounds of public money is believed to have been stolen, with claimants left owing hundreds, after fraudsters targeted Britain's main welfare benefit, universal credit.

    The BBC has been told of "money pouring out of the public purse" as criminals make "staggering" bogus online claims.

    A loophole in the online system is exploited to make fraudulent applications and claim advance loans.

    The government says it is determined to bring fraudsters to justice.

    A benefits official told the BBC that in one job centre more than a third of claims are currently suspected of being bogus, while £100,000 of fraudulent activity each month was recorded at another branch.
