So they're stupid and unconscionable. Sigh.
I really don't get that mentality. I just don't.
Yes I know heaps. Was even part of it, but was unaware at the time.
Strange thread to get bumped by a newbie. It's so old, I even had my old username lol.
I work in the field and the amount of fraud reports done & reported etc is crazy -As well as the amount of people caught every day... its amazing how many people are doing it.
As a Previous poster said they will eventually get caught and when they do they have to repay all the money they were not entitled to -
sometimes it can take along time time to build a case or to prove its fraud
Yes I know of a few people that do. And it p!sses me off that they do this but nothing will stop them.
I just realized how old this thread was lol
Definition of Centrelink fraud is fuzzy. I told Centrelink the percentage of care I had, confirmed in writing by both Centrelink and CSA. So it was a surprise to receive a bill for $800 based upon a wrong assessment to do with percentage of care and thus labelled a fraud. The person who made the decision couldn't admit to her mistake and was rude and unhelpful and probably didn't appreciate the complaint I made about her behaviour.
The most annoying thing though, was despite having the fact that I told them the correct percentage and having it in writing, they claimed they couldn't change it. So not only did I have to pay Centrelink back for their mistake but I was still labelled a fraud.
my friend M claims ssp and her partner of 5 yrs pays CS even though they live together, i wouldnt dob them in, its none of my business but what annoys me is she has a another friend who reguarly steal from supermarkets for them, nappies, formula, groceries etc so the extra CL is just wasted on crap and they never have any money.
My SIL will lose so much money that she really needs rasing 3 under 3 and last she spoke to CL they told her that if her bf stays more than 3 nights she has to declare his income but i just siad keep yourself single for as long as possible she has struggled so much in the last few yrs with no cs and losing her house and furniture but she is too honest
