A BRITISH expat has been forced to repay 17,000 euros after fraudulently claiming UK income support while living in Malaga. James Bowery, 54, from Blackpool, was sentenced to a three-month curfew order after pleading guilty to benefit fraud in September. Benefit cheats stole 90 million euros from British taxpayers in the year to March 2011 by not informing the authorities that they were going abroad.
