There lies big issue it should be departments onus to stop fraudelance by collating information and contacts of those claiments ie the local council etc. Changes then should be sent to claiment and then to housing associations/councils. It makes no sense why you would leave windows oportunities. When that person elderly forgetful or very ill they then get procecuted for wrongful claiming just simply for not informing changes circumstances.
If the system in place fraud would be down massively. Hell thats too simplistic policy making for those in charge over the years then when the do information collating like we found they make sows ear of it by taking cheap tenders who will cut corners instead building proper system which will work.
there is collation.
eg. if JSA is stopped then they automatically contact the council and housing benefit is automatically suspended. So as to how these got away with it I am curious.
Of course I am also curious how the papers got the story and how they decide to print the story as I have submitted dozens of stories about harsh treatments on benefits and I rarely even get a reply.
