Glad to see that my husbands hard earnt tax dollars are contributing to this family's life of luxury.
They don't deserve the money. They should have to pay it back. There's thousands of people out there doing the right thing which means they are doing it tough and going without.

$1200 a FN is over $30K a year!! No wonder we pay so much tax with people like this rorting the system.
OP, I don't know what I would do. Welfare cheats annoy me as I believe welfare is for those who need it, not to pay for extra's like holidays and fancy schmancy TV's. having said that, I know someone who gets paid cash and collects benefits. I haven't dobbed, just hope she gets caught one day.
I wouldn't send them a letter. If they've been openly doing it for years, I doubt it would achieve anything. They will just start lying and say they're not doing it anymore.

Have you seen proof of this OP or is just hearsay?
I mean, have you actually viewed the Centrelink statement or is this person just bragging about it?

If, however, you have facts in front of you than can be supported by solid evidence, then you have a duty to report a wrongdoing to the appropriate authority. I don't agree with turning a blind eye. I think that's a cop out. It's fine to demand your rights but we also have obligations too and if you know something curly is going on then you should report it. Centrelink has a dedicated line for this where you can call and leave details of the alleged offence without leaving your name. I also hate the term "my tax dollars". They're not your tax dollars. Taxation forms a small part of government funding. Just as it does when you pick up your prescription, put your child in school or attend a vaccination program etc.
Also I know it's easy to view rorters as derelicts but I can tell you of some fine, upstanding citizens who think nothing of making thousands of dollars every weekend at the local market with their stall and then putting their hand out every fortnight for their child support cheque and parenting pension. However, with clever accounting they remain unscathed. For now. And I admit it's frustrating to watch.
