I woke up on the 1st feb 2019 to find that I nearly had a $7000 debt I nearly die as it say that it back from 2014 to 2015 when I know for a fact that I was not working back then it is horrible to even think that I have a debt. I paid the $60 to find out what it’s all about and they come back with I worked and that I didn’t report probably.. now I pay $150 a week to pay back something I didn’t have in the first place they also took the family money for pay it back with was almost $5000 as I 6 kids this year I was hoping to pay off my mums funeral with I own $1200 on so that then gives my kids money back it’s really hard at the moment when I know I can’t work cause I have to much money to pay out for things and I know if I go and work money will then become hard cause they take money off you.. so Atm I take one day at a time and try my hardest to look after my kids...

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

It is dumb and they should not have touched anyone money they have affordable payments plans for a reason they will get there money back off people that own it at some point they should have just left it at that
