Saints and Scroungers, Series 4 Episode 6 of 20

Duration: 44 minutes

When Mohammed Arwo set up a charity to house the homeless and asylum seekers in Birmingham, the local authority and UKBA awarded him over a million pounds of taxpayers' money to provide essential services. But a painstaking five-year investigation by West Midlands Police revealed the company was involved in a complex and sophisticated fraud.

And Matt meets Pauline who, despite a terminal diagnosis of cancer, faced having her benefits revoked because she had lived longer than expected. Could a Saint at the end of a telephone line help Pauline and many others in her situation?
