Husband ‘had no clue’ wife pretended to be blind and disabled for 15 years to scam £1m in benefits

A man asserted he had no clue his significant other was claiming to be visually impaired and wheelchair-bound when she misled £1 million in benefits.

John Pomfrey, 60, said he was confused to his better half Christina’s falsehoods which have now handled her in jail.

On Monday, the 65-year-old grandma, from Runcorn, Cheshire, was imprisoned for a long time and eight months after she conceded at a prior hearing to various tallies of misrepresentation, bogus bookkeeping and making or providing articles for use in fakes.

She lied she was absolutely visually impaired and wheelchair-bound, yet reconnaissance by examiners gave her driving, taking a walk independent while perusing a paper and gathering her grandkids from school.

Mr Pomfrey, who wedded Christina in 2005, told the Daily Mail: “Individuals figure I more likely than not recognized what she was up to and where all the cash went, however the response to both is I have no idea.

“She has pulverized my life and I can’t pardon her. She is the most sly lady I have ever known.”
