Eastern European migrants are being offered expert help to illegally drain the UK benefits system, according to the Daily Mail.

The Bulgarian 24 Chassa (24 Hours) daily cites the article, which stresses that the Mail on Sunday undercover investigation has revealed the said help was provided by an accountants agency in North London, run by a 37-year-old Bulgarian businessman.

The Mail's reporter, posing as a newly arrived Bulgarian migrant seeking to claim benefits, was filmed being illegally offered fake documents to support her application by the above 'advice' agency.

Two female employees, Galia and Nina, spoke to her for around 45 minutes and much of their advice was legal and correct, the Mail writes.

But they also told her they could draw up bogus paperwork, falsely stating she had cleaned both their houses to back up a housing benefit claim.

The report comes on heels of labor restrictions being lifted across European Union for workers from the EU's two poorest nations, Bulgaria and Romania, and amid mass hysteria, particularly in the UK, that they will syphon the benefits system and commit crimes.

The 2 Britons did not last long, one was continually drunk and the other said he had gone to get a cheap holiday. The Bulgarian lads and lasses were hard working with many of them taking a second job as waiters or cleaners. - See more at: http://www.rctopshop.com/esky-rc-helicopters

My youngest son recently returned home to BG after 6 months working as a lifeguard in Cyprus. He was recruited by a BG agency, flew from Sofia and lived and worked mainly with young Bulgarians with a few other nationalities including 2 fellow Britons. The 2 Britons did not last long, one was continually drunk and the other said he had gone to get a cheap holiday. The Bulgarian lads and lasses were hard working with many of them taking a second job as waiters or cleaners.They taught my son to really appreciate BG culture and in December he went to stay with them to celebrate his birthday and five of the other lifeguards in a village in the South West almost 300kays from us.
How dare the press of my birth country condemn the people from this country who will work in jobs Britons will not do and are usually better educated than British youth.
They just dont get it that ther are Bulgarians and there are people with Bulgarian passports called roma who are not the same race. It is similar to seeing black people and asians in the UK, you cannot say they are the same as white Britons even if they hold the same documents as whites.

Don't believe the daily mail. You can't find a more self opinionated. racist, xenophobic paper than the daily mail. Sure, their facts may have an element of truth so they can claim to be the guardian of British people but that truth will have been twisted and stretched as far as is possible. If, on this one occasion, their research appears to hold up then they may, for once, have actually dome the public a service. Their normal journalism however is to be sensationalist.
