Frustrated with 3 years of incompetence by HMRC/Child Benefit Office, and their failure to strip my ex-boyfriend of his entitlement to Child Benefit for two separate periods, I thought I’d try a different avenue today.
After chancing across www.ActionFraud.police.uk on the internet – National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre – I assumed (wrongly) that they might actually be able to investigate my ex-boyfriend’s Child Benefit fraud, which has substantially and negatively impacted on me financially over the last 3 years. After all, their title does sound pretty impressive. I had an on-line web chat via http://www.ActionFraud.police.uk
Disappointingly, the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre won’t investigate, as they don’t actually investigate benefit fraud! Instead, I was told to report the matter to HMRC.
I’ve repeatedly urged HMRC/Child Benefit Office to properly investigate over the last 3 years, and they have abysmally failed to perform basic checks.
