I am sitting here in shock, sorry to sound a bit dramatic, but I have just telephoned HM Revenue & Customs Tax Credits helpline and they took my name and National Insurance number as usual but then said they had to ask me a set of questions to prove I was who I said I was. This service would be provided by EXPERIAN!! And the questions may have nothing to do with Tax Credits. Well i was on the phone for 10 minutes, and then FAILED!!

 

They now say I will be contacted by my local HM Rev & Customs office within 48 hours to attend an interview to ascertain my identity!!:eek:

 

I suggested that perhaps the new system was not working properly as I am ME and no one else and answered the given questions and would like to speak to someone else. I was told if there is time at some point today a supervisor will call me back but in order for them to access the system I have to pass this test!! So even if I do get to speak to someone they cant access me on the system.

 

I wouldnt mind but I have a case being fast tracked by my lone parent advisor at the Job Centre and they just wanted my Child Benefit number (again) and I was just ringing to give it to them.

 

What is wrong with this system if I cant even prove I am myself.

 

Has anyone else had this same problem?? I am not waiting for 48 hours to be contacted I am going down there now to prove I am myself and get this sorted, fast track my a&*e

 

 

rant over, thanks for reading

 

ps, whole point of actually posting is to see if this has happened to anyone else and should i make a complaint and who to etc?

 

Surely they cant use a system that doesnt work

I had to leap similar hurdles today..... I passed thankfully.

 

I only wanted to tell them that my wages had gone up a bit.... but as we get basic element only it makes no odds anyway!


Please do not ask me for advice via PM as I will not reply.
