I will try to keep this brief and I hope I posted in the right section.
I know someone (family member) who has been claiming single parenting payment for years even though she lives with her husband and he has full time well payed employment.
From what I can see they don't struggle. They have been on holidays. Bought new cars, purchased there own home years ago and well they never go without.
It makes me a bit angry. My husband and I do the right thing and we are far from being able to buy our own home, if we cheated like this then yea we would have a deposit in no time, it just doesn't seem fair.
If I knew someone who rorted the system for a short time because they were genuinely doing it tough then I would happily look the other way. But knowing these people have been doing this for years and look like never stopping I start to get angry, I feel like they are cheating and they don't deserve the new car or the new house but if I reported them for fraud I worry it would effect the children the most because they would take there anger out on them and also the penalty I imagine would be huge.
What would you do?
