Would you report a family member who had committed Benefit Fraud?
Unless you work for the DWP fraud investigation dept in which case -
Yes of course I would
Yes. But then again, I've never really liked my family much!
Absolutely, and I have.
Wrong is wrong - and to all those people who say 'family first' or 'one person isn't going to bankrupt/fix the government,' I say if you're not part of the cure, you are part of the problem.
No of course not, but i'd blackmail them for half the money! (JOKE) .
No, but I`d have a word in their earhole about it though.
sorry if that disappoints anyone but yes i would.
definitely & absolutely.
it's breaking the law, stealing from the Public Purse.
In a heartbeat, but that's just me. I get up at 6 a.m. and work my tail off 6 days a week paying taxes up the wazoo and that includes my forced donation to SSI FICA IRS State and Local Taxes to name a few. I could live w/o one more cheater whether or not I'm related to them
people that commit this fraud are often very mentally ill so i wouldn't bother reporting it.
although i would report YOU to local government for being SMALL MINDED.
mmmmm thats a hard one...you hav to be sure they did it try everything to give them an alibi and tell another trusted member of family who you can confide in because you have dangerous info and if you do kno its them even though it may hurt tell on them this like minor problems wen people were little don't be a tattletale cus they won't like u but its for the best
No Family First and Stupid Government last.
sorry i cant answer this question due to the simple fact that i am a benitfits fruad investigator but i would be willing to watch the answers and follow up on peoples answers here
No, you are not going to solve America's problem by policing your own family members.
Oh, if glennw is a benefits fraud investigator, I get to be one too.
Rediculous! Of course not.
No. I have enough to do between looking after a family, cleaning a house and working full time. If the fraud department want to catch people who do this, they can get off their backsides and work for their money - just like I have to!
All day long. Absolutely.
Hi, I'm Brian's wife, and I thought I would pick up a few questions as I am having a lazy night. The answer to your question is no I would not report a family member. I would, however, let that member know that I am aware that they are committing fraud and ask them to stop doing so. I would also point out the penalties for committing fraud and remind them that they will end up with a criminal record.
Having said that, if a member of my family was committing fraud I would possibly feel a little guilty that they found it necessary to do so, and I would offer them support.
I would find it hard to - blood is thicker than water. I would badger them constantly until they saw sense and stopped claiming. Personally, I hate paying taxes for those bums that sit on their asses all day long, not actively looking for work or physically able to work but claiming incapacity etc, but I just couldn't grass on my own.
No, it serves the government right for making it so easy to claim.
No I wouldnt I can understand how it frustrates people who work all the time and feel that these people are a waste of space etc... I personally wouldnt do that on anyone I mind my own business...Truth is you never know a persons circumstances so dont go cause them heartache you have to ask yourself of what benifit is it to you or to them to do this and is it really something you need to do will it help them or you in anyway... I doubt it will
No dont think you will need to it is most likely they will pick up your question and your e mail address and investigate.But it is a serious matter and quite rightly so.
