I am after some advice please.
I have been knowingly claiming Child Tax and Working Tax Credits since reuniting with my partner.
I acknowledge that it is fraud and I should have immediately reported a change of circumstances.
That aside, I have received a letter detailing that Mr X has links to my address during a 4 month window in 2019 and I would like peoples experience of such interviews. I plan to be honest, ironic I know.
My main concern is that I work for the NHS and should I be convicted, I would likely lose my job.
I understand that my consequences have actions but without my job, I won't be in a position to repay what I owe.
I already have a step change agreement in place.
I really do not wish to bog this with excuses but I haven't been using the money for holidays/fine dining/handbags...it has been used to booster a low income family.
I would be grateful if I could hear from anyone who has been through the same and ease my worries by informing me what I can expect.
