Bogus Family Allowance Claims by Polish Immigrants

I was chatting to a guy the other day who works for a National Company who employs a lot of Eastern European workers.
I was astonished to learn from him that there were quite a few little scams going on like doctors certificates being sent from Poland when workers were going home for a short holiday and supposedly becoming sick. However, the mother of them all is the family allowance scam.
Polish workers are bringing their family, wife and kids, over for a short period, long enough to sign on for family allowance say 4 - 6 weeks and then the family return to Poland and the worker collects the family allowance and sends it home with part of his wages as normal.
This is happening up and down the country and is a known scam. It takes so long for our system to suss this out that they could get away with it for a year.
I just want to know how this is being allowed to happen ? No wonder the French holding centre at Sangatte was overflowing. I wondered why these so called refugees crossed through other EU countries such as Germany, Italy, France etc but had no desire to stop off there. It is now clear to me..... Welcome to the Land of Milk and Honey my darlings.
