Tenancy Types and Management

I have recently received 2 invoices from the local authority saying that I must pay back a large amount of money that has been overpaid. I took the tenant on housing benefit who then decided to work illegaly and still claim H/B. Why should I be penalised for this? Should the local authority not chase the tenant who was fraudulent??

Anyone had similar experiences? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
