Claimants to lose DLA even if FALSELY accused of fraud (to think this is HIGHLY unreasonable.)

How can this even be legal. To stop a claimants income just because some bastard has falsely accused them.
In every other instance in this country someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty
Except when it comes to benefits when you are guilty until proven innocent.
But NOW it seems that the innocent are STILL going to be treated like they are guilty. angry

So, no unnecessary stress, then? angry

BTW, if they simply didn't turn up, rather than contacting you, I'd play it safe and write to Capita cc the DWP stating that this person hasn't turned up. Keep a copy.

You know what they're like.
