Absolutely terrible. Centrelink where no help.
The way they are coming to these debt figures demonstrates a completely flawed methodology, by averaging out earnt money of a financial year, instead of specific periods, and the fact they are requiring me to provide financial records dating back 7 years.

I believe this is the most appalling thing any Australian government has done to its own people.
i have lost the love for my country and see politicians as a corrupt evil
