Customer Question

My grandaughter is on benifit money
I lent her £900 pound to take her children on holiday over a year ago.
The benifit off ice have frozen the account due to some one falsly accusing her of fruad
which has been proved to be untrue. the benifit office will not release the cash to her so she cannot pay me back.
I submit that the money belongs to me and should not be held by the benifit office

Thank you for your question . My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

Did she declare the money?

How was she going to repay it if she's on benefits?
