When I first started seeing my DF we both worked at the same place, which is how we met. He got a real hard time over being with me and ended up quitting in December (we got together in November). After 8 weeks of looking for a job he started getting centrelink payments fortnightly while he continued looking for work and went in there to prove he was looking every Friday (or second Friday, I can't remember now). After a few months and quite a few interviews he got a job, so obviously he stopped getting the money from centrelink. He then moved in with me (at my mum's place) because his sister kicked him out after a big fight (long story as to why he was living with her). This was in April last year. A couple of months ago they send us a letter saying that as he was in a marriage like relationship from the 21st November to whenever he now has to pay back all the money which is about two and a half grand.
Marriage like relationship? We only got together on the 21st. We didn't like together for another 5 months and didn't move out on our own for another 3. How is that marriage like??
We have contacted them several times and they sent as another letter and said after reviewing their decision they have decided not to change it as we didn't provide any evidence and still have to pay it back.
And on top of that they keep sending letters to my mum's house after we've told them several times what our new address is.
I HATE THEM!!
We can't afford to give 2 and a half grand to people that are complete morons!
I'm sorry, rant over!
