  1. Hello, I got a phone call today from the DWP, this time a different woman from the first. The first woman has changed teams and is no longer dealing with my investigation. I spoke to this new woman and she told me that the investigation should never had happened. She asked me if I had been working prior to making the claim, which I had. She then told me that because my claim was contribution based the saving doesn't matter and that I had enough contributions to make a claim. She told me that she was going to speak to her manager and close the investigation. Sh
  2. Hello, I did tell the woman from the DWP that I have Aspergers and that talking on the phone, with the things she is saying to me, is making me very anxious. I still haven't received the letter she told me she has sent and resent. That was a month ago. I think that her intentions are to accuse me of not getting the letter so she can go another route to get the information. I have drafted a letter that I want to send her, recorded mail, this way she should get it and know that I am willing to help. This is the letter: In response to the email you sent me on 29th Ap
  3. hello, i havent heard back from the woman at the dwp. i spoke to a social worker at an autism group that i go to. she told me to write a letter, that way they have to respond. i am going to draft a letter and ask for her opinion on it and hopefully that will do something. she told me that if i write a letter they wont prosecute me as i have admitted to what i have done. i am not sure if this is correct. i read that if they can prosecute they will. it is causing me to worry a lot about it. i am worried what affect it could have on me, prison or convict
  4. i contacted the woman from the dwp a few times about getting the new letter with the new information that she requires. she sent me a reply saying that she is changing teams and that it would be a while until she can sort things out, also, she sent a letter already. i have not yet recieved this and i told her that, she said that she would resend it. could she say that i am stalling because i have not received the letter? this is some thing that is worrying me now, i know that she could get the information without my help. i dont want to seem like i am not willing to sort this out. my thou
  5. hello, this is what it says after her name in an email she sent recently, FES Local Service Compliance Officer. there is no appointment or interview at this time. just inquiring about my account, though speaking to her on the phone she mentioned that it could go to fraud depending on what information i was willing to give her. thats when she started making comments about me getting into trouble if i dont tell her what ever she wanted to know. many thanks shoelover
  6. there isnt really a title just, "on behalf of the fraud and error service manager". thats all. other than the name of the person. i dont know if including that would be a good idea. thanks
  7. they are investigating the fact that i had over £16,000 in my savings when i claimed. that is why i think it will go to prosecution. i havent yet had any interview or caution. just a letter asking for information about my account.
  8. what amounts make this a compliance issue. i read somewhere that it is the amount of money in my savings that makes it a prosecution. if it does go to prosecution, do you know what could happen? this is worrying me a lot. thanks
  9. the inland revenue sent them information about me having money in my savings that went above the amount for claiming jsa. they want to know how many accounts i have, how much money i had at the time and whether i knew what i was doing. they also asked me about an account number that i do not recognise. this account number that i do not recognize is worrying me as well. i dont know if someone has opened an account in my name. i went to my bank and asked them about my accounts, if that number was connected to any of my accounts and they said no. does anyone know what kind of fine i c
  10. sorry i am not to sure i understand this comment? recently i got a phone call from the woman at the dwp who is investigating me. she started asking me questions over the phone saying that if i didnt answer them i would get in trouble. i told her i felt pressured and that she should put these questions in writing which she told me she would. i havent yet received a letter from her. she told me she would send the original letter again with the request for new information and that she would start the investigation again. i told her that i was willing to he
  11. hello, i have dropped out of uni as it was getting too much. i was struggling with the work as a result of stress from this. i have been looking online for past cases to see the outcome. some people have been mentioned online. their name is mentioned and what they have done and their punishment. i am worried now about the possibility of my name going into the papers and possibly a photo. does anyone know where this could go if it went to prosecution, which i think it will. as i understand it, if they can prove me being false from the start they will go to prosecution. i am not sure
  12. Hello, Thanks for the response. I wanted to ask if anyone knows if a conviction for benefit fraud could affect me getting a student loan. I spoke to the woman from the DWP who sent me the letter about my claim. She was aggressive in demanding the answer to questions and I felt that she was tricking me into giving her information. Unfortunately I told her that I her how much money was in my account. I do get very anxious in situations like that and I have been worrying so much about this. I spoke to a solicitor on the phone and he told me that I
  13. Thanks for your response. I didn't think about all the times I collected JSA. I added up an amount that I received before going to university and in total it came to around £2050. That is over the £2000 mark. Could this change things? Thank you for your support, it is helping.
