"Fraud investigators have been called in after 15 members of the same family received public aid worth up to £1m and at least three new homes by claiming they lived in a single flat destroyed by the Grenfell Tower fire.
One of Britain’s most notorious “crash-for-cash” fraudsters, Masi Naqshbandi, is among the relatives rehoused in new properties, including flats in a luxury development in Kensington, west London, furnished by John Lewis.

Concerns among council officials grew when some of the relatives started listing the flat as their address on official documentation after the tragedy. Two days after the fire, one couple registered Grenfell Tower as the address on their son’s birth certificate.

Under council rules, adults who can prove they lived in the tower at the time of the blaze are each eligible for rehousing with their families, with all rent and utility bills waived until July 2019.

Before then, they are put up in hotels and given a weekly allowance of up to £300 to cover costs such as meals.

Inquiries by The Sunday Times have revealed one Naqshbandi family member and his partner still appear on the electoral roll at an address in Harrow, several miles away.






The Naqshbandis, originally from Afghanistan, did not lose any immediate family in the fire, which killed 71 people, and one person from their flat suffered minor injuries. Three family members were in Australia at the time.

Those saying they lived in the three-bedroom flat before the blaze include a mother and father and six adult children, at least three of whom have partners and a young child each.

An uncle from Afghanistan is also receiving taxpayer-funded aid from the council. He is said to have registered his driving licence at the flat only last month — eight months after the fire. One of the siblings, convicted of gang-related violence, has been linked to an address in south London.

Members of the Naqshbandi family have been given at least three new flats in a social housing block set aside for Grenfell survivors at Kensington Row, a high-end development close to the amenities of Kensington High Street. One of the siblings, Masi Naqshbandi, 33, said on Friday that he and his partner, Mojda Habib, 30, had recently been moved into a new flat with their nine-month-old son.
Masi Naqshbandi has a crash-for-cash conviction.

In August 2012, Naqshbandi was jailed for more than seven years for his role in one of Britain’s biggest accident insurance frauds. He and his gang were found guilty of staging 250 crashes to make insurance claims worth in excess of £6.5m."

So at least some people seem to benefit from a disaster like Grenfell Tower.

I don't condone it. In the context of the wider crime committed by Kensington and Chelsea I don't actually give a flying f uck.

No point in getting angry, it's the tip of the iceberg. These are only the inept fraudsters. In this case it's not just taxpayers money they are consuming but something that's becoming a scarce resource: flats suitable for re-housing victims of the fire.

Can the OP summarise or expand on the point he's trying to make? At the moment it appears to just be sharing the news of some fraudsters trying to profit from a tragedy? I'm not sure exactly why we all needed that info and what the last sentence of his post is alluding to but I am interested to hear the point expanded upon or simplified for me

So just the random sharing of some fraud news related to a politically charged tragedy, fair doos then, evidently not underlying motive. [rle]

Perhaps it was just that a lot of taxpayers' cash was handed out after the disaster and the crooks are getting their share.

hopefully this will deflect from the real story of those still waiting to be rehoused, why it happened in the first place and why the government won't take the measures recommended to stop another disaster.

A lot of supposition and political propaganda on here, but the OP is fact. [:P]
