In the beginning, Stephen and Michelle claimed that every taxpayer dollar they took home was being spent on caretakers and other support since they are too fat to care for themselves.
But a documentary filmmaker did a little bit of digging, and guess what they found? The money was being used for a lot of other things including luxuries most taxpayers will never experience in their lives…
The filmmakers behind “Benefits: Too Fat To Work” followed the scammers as they abused the system to live off other people’s hard work. The couple used their benefit money to plan a lavish winter wedding. The money was supposed to be used on caretakers and other medical concerns, but instead it went to extreme, selfish luxury.
According to the documentary, the “too fat” couple spent more than $4,000 of their benefits on their “dream wedding” which included a duck plate, ornate decorative fixtures, expensive invitations, and buffet-style catering for the wedding party.
