I was one of the people who was falsely accused to being overpayed Income Support because of these muppets. I have almost sorted it it now but the amount of hassle, stress and lack of communication between agencies has been awful. To compound the problems they added a third party call "The Debt recovery Agency" who I was required to answer too, this body didn't have any access to any of my data and would not accept bank statements (the only proof I hold) of proof of payments.
The Goverments records are so inaccurate and fragmented that it could not be used as evidence anywhere accept in the mind of the Debt recovery agency. If I was a benefit cheat I could have stole thousands and they wouldnt even notice, this is why their fraud statistic show a decrease. There has in actuallity been an increase and this loss is nothing compared with the waste incurred by the watchdogs
