Cashing in on jihad and misery. That too is jihad.

BRITAIN’S SICKEST FRAUDSTER Vile conwoman claimed £200k compensation for Manchester bombing, London Bridge terror attack AND Grenfell Tower

Ruksana Ashraf admitted to cashing in on some of the UK’s recent tragedies

A SICK fraudster has been jailed after she bagged £180,000 after claiming she was a victim in recent terror attacks and tragedies that shook the country.

Ruksana Ashraf, 44, created fake identities and went through various insurance companies to benefit from the Manchester Bombings, London Bridge attack and Grenfell Tower fire.

Ruksana Ashraf has been sentenced to three years after she claimed she had been a victim of the UK’s worst terror attacks and tragedies

The counts of fraud relating to false insurance claims made to RSA, Aviva, and Legal and General between 2012 and 2017.

The court heard the 44-year-old from Edinburgh had used multiple mobile phone SIM cards and fake names and addresses to take out dozens of insurance policies and then make bogus claims.

Ashraf also admitted one count of possessing criminal property in relation to receiving vouchers from insurers instead of compensation.

Ben Holt, prosecuting, said the successful claims totalled £50,116, but Ashraf had also tried to scam a further £129,030, claims which were not successful.

Grenfell Tower fire in June last year killed 72 people and injured 70

He told Inner London Crown Court on Wednesday that Ashraf made claims relating to Grenfell Tower and two major terrorist attacks

Mr Holt added: “Some of those claims related to terrorist attacks or natural disasters that had recently happened.

“Three claims were said to arise from the Grenfell Tower, two from the bombing on the Arena in Manchester and one from the terrorist attack on Borough Market in London.

“I do accept that the idea behind the fraud is slightly different in so far as the defendant was not making false representation to the council that they were a resident and liable for payment.

“But it does need to be borne in mind that this defendant was claiming to be present at natural disasters when clearly she wasn’t.”

Daniel King, defending, appealed for a suspended sentence and said his client had not used the cash to live an “exotic” lifestyle.

The court heard Ashraf, of Saughton Mains Terrace, Edinburgh, had turned to drink and gambling following two abusive relationships and was carer to her elderly mother.

Mr King added: “She also accepts that those claims relating to the tragedies of Grenfell Tower, at Borough Market and then the Manchester Arena demonstrate a callous and heartless underlying feature of this fraudulent activity.”

But Judge Wood QC said he could not impose a suspended jail sentence because of the length of offending and sophistication of the scam.
