Not really a benefits scam as such. Ok, the original renter moves out and the gangmaster takes it on. Ever heard of gangmasters?
They run gangs of illegal workers off the system. They supply farmers who want their crops in cheap, they supply the proliferation of work agencies in fact anywhere that a large body of workers are needed off the grid. The workers work, the gangmaster gets their pay and deducts his share plus costs for the bed, transport and whatever he can con them out of, then gives them the pittance that is left. The worker can't complain as they're off the system and if caught would likely be deported.
But the same again,just because you don't see it with your own eyes it don't exist.
