Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

It has caused mental health and stress levels to sky rocket, unstable work and life balance as an outcome, endless time and money costing me to chase records from my old closed bank accounts and pay to get statements printed out from old archives. Very unprofessional and very incompetent of the Australian government. It started as a $6000 debt asking for the entire amount of newstart i was ever paid to be paid back from 2010. What an absolute joke

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

Very disappointed with the Australian Government farce that we live under in this dictatorship of today when politicians sit their all high and mighty and make their massive incomes while we get hammered on every level in every way and they get away with crimes, treason and the worst organised crime and sex rings. It is a disgrace and common knowledge nowadays the public is NOT HAPPY JAN
