Muslim Taking Welfare Benefits Busted Living High On The Hog On Facebook

A Muslim woman from the U.K. complained that she was poor and hungry. She has been receiving public benefits, claiming that some days she was starving but the only food she ate was meals provided by her local mosque. She's been paid over $72,000 to date of taxpayer money, but when authorities got a gander of her Facebook page they quickly realized that it was only chump change in this beauty queen's life.

Carina Reid, a model who runs her own beauty business, has been accepting public assistance for years, but you would never know it if you saw the photos on her Facebook page. Pictures she posted show her in 5 star hotels, in designer bikinis and heels by the pool side, and eating out at fine restaurants. Reid has apparently been traveling the world on the taxpayer's dime.

Reid claims that she only appears to be living the high life because she went away for business training, or on trips funded by friends. But authorities kept digging and discovered that the apartment Reid claims to rent is actually a luxury condo that she owns. Last year Reid paid $28,000 for the apartment.

Further digging turned up 19 bank accounts in Reid's name, totally $260,000. Reid also paid $168,000 for a place in Dubai to expand her business over the last couple of years.

Still, Reid insists that her lavish lifestyle is really just an illusion, and that she really is poor. Considering she's been sentenced to prison for 3 years, that's probably a good thing-- she'll be more used to the accommodations.
