my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much as the overpayment please?
Just over £2000
Have they said why he could not accept just a formal caution?
When he was at the job centre he admitted what he did and accepted what they said and accepted that he would pay it back at £200 a month
Did he have a Solicitor present?
No he didn't because he had nothing to hide. He admitted from the start he done wrong. Tgis was months ago
Did they say that would be the end of the matter and no other action would be taken?
He was tlld it might go to coury but it wasn't in their interest
Ok - given the value he may be entitled to a caution. Otherwise you can't stop it from going to Court.
He's not trying to stop it he knows he has to go. He accepted what he done was wrong and is paying it back.
Indeed. Sadly he may just be entitled to be cautioned and he needs to get a Solicitor to explore that option with the DWP
He had the interview with the jobcentre back in September
Yes of course, but he should get a Solicitor now to see if this can be dealt with by caution
So what will happen at court then? He's paying back the money admitted he done wrong why go to court now
He will be subject to a Court penalty, likely to be just a fine.
His interview was under caution
Yes I understand that. But that is not the same as receiving an administrative caution
Being interviewed under caution and receiving a formal caution are two separate things.
Is there anything else I can clarify about this today please?
Make sure his Solicitor asks caution to be ended.
