Period debt occurred: 
March 2015 to July 2017
Has your case been referred to a collection agency?: 
Yes
Payment Type:

Appealing Debt?: 
No
Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

I intend to appeal the debt. I am asking my university for evidence. In short, a decision maker in Centrelink decided to state that my higher degree was by course work, when in fact it is by research.

It has caused me some anxiety, but I know I have not done anything wrong.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

It is absurd and very disturbing that public servants, who are bound by the Commonwealth Government's Code of Conduct, can behave so badly.

It is shoot first, ask questions later. I believe this cash grab is illegal. No one should be accused of false evidence.

I say that those responsible should be held accountable for their actions under the Code of Conduct.
