Authorities have seized thousands of pounds from a woman who falsely claimed almost £20,000 in benefits.
A confiscation order for £10,858 was made against Farzana Parveen at Glasgow Sheriff Court after she collected income support payments, despite possessing "substantial savings".
Parveen, from Cambuslang, pled guilty to benefit fraud of over £19,000 on March 22 this year.
The 43-year-old claimed the benefit between November 16, 2006 and January 18, 2009.
Lindsey Miller, head of the serious and organised crime division, said: "Farzana Parveen sought income support from DWP, but failed to declare that she had substantial savings.
"This is fraud and is ultimately a theft from the public purse. Parveen had made £19,500 this way.
"Today's confiscation order represents the amount available following the repayment of over £8,000 to DWP.
"Anyone considering this type of crime should remember that they will not only be prosecuted for the offence, but will also find themselves subject to the Proceeds of Crime Act."
The confiscated money will be added to the CashBack for Communities programme.
Parveen will be sentenced on October 4.
