A MELBOURNE makeup artist — dubbed Australia’s Kim Kardashian — who makes up to $600 a day has been accused of rorting Centrelink. 

Lina Ayoubi flaunts her flashy lifestyle on social media, and despite earning hundreds of dollars a day from cash-in-hand appointments at her home beauty salon, A Current Affair reports she also pockets an extra $600 a week in Centrelink payments.

During the program’s investigation, a producer booked an hour-long appointment at Ms Ayoubi’s home salon for $100.

It was during this appointment the makeup artist spilt her secrets.

ACA reports that on top of the daily casual appointments — priced between $70-$150 — Ms Ayoubi also books at least one wedding a week at the cost of $600.

It’s reported she then lies to Centrelink and claims the business only rakes in $75 a week.

She then pockets $600 in Centrelink payments — through single parent benefits and family tax benefits.

Ms Ayoubi’s sketchy claims then allow her to live a luxury lifestyle with fancy clothes and expensive cars.

It’s reported she recently returned to her home of Lebonon for cosmetic surgery.

Posting a picture of a black Mercedes on her Facebook, she captioned it:

“Mercedes means class my babe SLK 200 Kompressor ‪#‎mercedes‬ ‪#‎slk‬#class#black”.

When ACA reporter Reid Butler confronted Ms Ayoubi on the street she said, “Turn the camera off — I don’t know what you’re talking about,” as she spoke on a mobile phone before getting into a BMW SUV.

General Manager of the Department of Human Services Hank Jongen says the longer a person has been making false claims, the worse the consequences will be.

“If you’ve set out to deliberately defraud the Australian tax payer then not only do you have to repay all of the money — but in addition to that you face the possibility of a prison sentence or hefty fines,” he told the program.

And there's plenty more of garbage like this rorting the system. 

Deport the piece of garbage back to Lebanon.

Let's see how the 'law' deals with this one. 

Does Australia (the Australian government - or more importantly the Australian people) really want to import more criminals?
