I don't think i am investigate at this time as I spoke to them yesterday about why my employment form was late. There was no indication that i am being investigated. however I have received an SMS earlier in the week that centrelink had received information that my employment situation had changed please update your information.

Hello
No I do not think so, they would simply ask for a repayment of the said amount paid.

It is not a considerable time frame of 7 months, it will be deducted form your payments now.

I wish to help you in this situation.
