A Dundee woman is to stand trial accused of falsely claiming to be a single mum to scam £32,000 in benefits.
Amanda Wilson is alleged to have been “knowingly concerned in fraudulent activity” to obtain £25,968.36 in working and child tax credits over the course of two years.
She is further alleged to have failed to give Dundee City Council prompt notification of a change in her circumstances that led to her obtaining £5,983 in housing benefit between August 2014 and May 2016.
Prosecutors say in both cases she was “maintaining a common household” with Andrew Wilson, who was in paid employment, meaning she obtained benefits she was not entitled to.
Amanda Wilson, 34, of Mossgiel Place, denies charges under the Social Security Administration Act and the Tax Credits Act on summary complaint at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Sheriff Simon Collins QC set a trial date in January and ordered Wilson to appear at a pre-trial hearing three weeks before the trial date.
