If it's illegal then don't do it. Simple. Even if chances are low it won't stop you personally from getting caught.

To be honest just work the 20 hours and if you still need more money there are plenty of other opportunities to make extra money

Buy things cheap and sell them on ebay for profit. Do some services local to your area like animal care etc etc

The Home Office is hot on this at the moment. Tesco recently received a pretty hefty fine for allowing students to work over 20 hours. Any employer worth their salt isn't going to allow you to work over your 20 hours. If you decided to get a 2nd job and do 2x20 hours, then that's your perogative, but I reckon you're asking for trouble and will more than likely get deported for it.

You are also prevented from being self employed and therefore the e-bay thing would be very iffy!

Doesn't matter if it's the right reasons, it is illegal. If you get caught you will be deported and not able to get another visa for the UK if that happens.

I know international students who do things like private tuition or work in a tuition centre where it's cash in hand.
It's the safest option - and you are unlikely to get caught.
I totally feel for international students so I do understand the desperation of needing the money.

My gf and I are going through a tough situation and our uni even said it would not be a problem if she was a home student. So frustrating.
