Couple driving Ferrari convicted of fraud
A couple in canton Neuchatel have been convicted of benefit fraud after being seen driving a Ferrari and ordering an expensive funeral ornament.
Over the past seven years they’ve been claiming social security payments worth almost CHF 250,000.
The court heard the husband worked for a company owned by his father in Le Locle and hid his pay in cash in the house.
The court has ordered the money to be repaid and added a CHF 6,000 fine. They’ve also been given a three-year suspended prison sentence.
