According to The Sun, a shopaholic who sold stolen goods on eBay while fraudulently claiming thousands of pounds in benefits has been ordered to pay back the remainder of her ill-gotten gains.

Kristina Roberts had previously admitted four counts of benefit fraud between 2009 and 2013, and received a suspended prison sentence relating to selling good good on eBay that she had stolen from shops.
