i am most concerned about telling them the person who claim for me.i wont do it. i told them on the phone i was away for a week when in fact i was away for 4 weeks. i am a union member and i would get a phone call for a job. i don't even care about the money for the weeks i was away. i am home now though and haven't got a job. if i fill out the paperwork i will be admitting to lying about the length of the trip and also be admitting to claiming benefits while out of us. I will leave blank the question about who claimed for me?
They don't. i am assuming they will ask how i could have claimed being out of the country if i say i did it.
the most important question i need help with is do fill out the form and leave that important(to them) question out or do i ignore the letter?im sure they will send a follow up letter asking again who filed the claim. the letter states if the do receive a response within 7 days a determination will be made based upon available information. what should i do?
that is not an issue because i work through a union hiring hall.if i "fess up " now what is the worst case scenario?
last question.sorry.they have a freeze on all claims . i am home now. i have no idea when i will get a job.based on the info ive given you do you think they will determine something without my input or will they keep a freeze until i respond? what would you do?thanks for your patience and assistance
maybe i will stall for this first letter and see what happens. i am not interested in lying ,but not telling them the persons name who filed for me will probably be a problem that i don't know how get around aside from just telling them that i wont tell them. all this being said the punishment for misrepresenting maybe a 12 month freeze on benefits anyway.
