I ask this as we know a family who blatantly cheat centrelink and brag about it, they have been dobbed in by a few different people now and nothing has ever come of it??
A bit of background, a couple with 3 children, dad has a low income wage, declares his wage and pays tax. Mum owns and runs her own business so therefore doesn't declare a wage at all but earns very good money.
Because of this they get the maximum family assistance, child care benefit, health care card etc..
The reason this annoys me so much is because they clearly don't need it, both come from well off famillies who have helped them buy a million dollar house which is now being renovated, they take numerous holidays during the year, and have just bought a new car!!
I know I'm being petty and it should bother me but it really annoys me that people who obviously don't need the money rort the system and nothing gets done!
So does anyone actually know anyone who got caught or is reporting this fraud a waste of time?
