  1. Hi Erika The first letter to come was from PC and that said that PC would be stopped from 12/7 The second letter was from HB and they said that HB would be suspended from 12/7 The reason that PC gave was that PC is being stopped because I am involved in making reborn dolls. This is no longer true though, I stopped making reborn dolls back last November. The letter read as if they believe that I'm still doing this. Hi Golden syrup, it doesn't matter to me if anyone from the DWP reads my post here and can identify it with me, I'm being honest and saying nothing that they don
  2. Hi Insyder, I'm not sure of an average income over time and they haven't given me a figure of what is owed back to them. We just told the truth at the interviews and I had been reborning since 2007. Hi Kelcou, This is the problem here, I'm not sure where or when a hobby becomes a business, I guess in hindsight I should have looked into this but didn't think about it at the time.

  7. No, reborn uk isn't my site, i don't have a website, I simply made reborn dolls from home just like a hobby just as many ladies do, and sold them just to continue my hobby as I needed to buy the supplies for them. we just need to know where we can take advice now and what will be likely to happen.
  8. Hi Last November my husband and myself were accused of benefit fraud. We were called into housing benefit office and were interviewed seperately, under caution by both housing benefit and pension service. My husband is 69 years old and I am 49. My husband retired from work at 65 and I have been unwell on and off since 2002 after suffering from cancer. We live in a privately rented house and claimed housing benefit, council tax benefit and hubby also claimed pension credit as we had a short fall in our rent. I happened upon reborn dolls and began reborning and selling on ebay some time
