A business management student who pretended to be a Grenfell Tower victim’s son to get £5,000 and free hotel stays was jailed for 18 months today.
Mohammad Gamoota, 31, claimed he was living with his father on the 24th floor when the fire ripped through the building and he only escaped because he was praying at his local mosque.
Is that all? Clearly, he has no ambition, no drive…
Gamoota has become the fifth convicted Grenfell fraudster, following Joyce Msokeri, 47, Anh Nhu Nguyen, 53, Elaine Douglas, 51, and Tommy Brooks, 52.
Hmmm, something about them, I just can’t put my finger on what, though.
Jamaican nationals Elaine Douglas, 51, and Tommy Brooks, 52, spent eight months living in a four-star hotel at the taxpayers’ expense at a cost of £400-a-night.
They also spent more than £20,000 on meals and clothing on pre-paid credit cards which were given to them by the local council.
You’re given a credit card by the council and no-one monitors the spend? No-one says ‘Wait, how much…?!’ at any point?
