Sickening isn`t it? You don`t tell them and your ordered to pay it back if caught. You DO tell them and they drag you through the courts. I`m gobsmacked, bit not surprised by the way people are treated when they are honest.

If they had a brain cell between them of which they haven't,then this would never reach court taking the circumstances into account.

Its more than likely on their already bloody minded agenda; to to try and cause as much embarrassment and distress t the individual as they possibly can, therefore appeasing some of the jobsworth tax payers out there who will no doubt love this form of publicity.

Oh look how wonderfully the TORYS are dealing with the scum bag unemployed,rah rah rah.

They all make me vomit!

Your spot on Paul. This man probably came forward knowing HMRC would flag up his tax and that he would be questioned about it in the future, so he declared it. Rightly or wrongly, the system is geared to feck us all in the manner they choose. Being honest doesn`t always pay, although the majority of claimants would notice an overpayment and fear the reaper and speak up, but if it`s only a few hundred quid we are speaking about, then let them find it.
