A neighbour of mine who is in dire straights applied for the welfare assistance grant that is open to everyone on the Wirral ( working or not) he went to get his Visa card worth 60 for food and clothing, he was greeted by around 40 people who the council had texted to call in and collect ! Apparently, some bright spaark from the council has sent the same text to many people who needed the help.

For future reference here is the link

Thats tight that. So people turned up thinking that their claim had been processed when it hadn't?

I find that disturbing. For just one day at one O.S.S they had 40 odd applicants???? Families too, going by the school transport comment. Just how many people are penniless?

Rudebox, the situation is a hell of a lot more than you realise, I went from 1200 A WEEK (after tax) as a construction site manager to 74 a week, at first the money in the bank helps, now Three years later I don't live, I survive, and that is from assistance from my dad and stepmum. I'm one of the lucky ones !!

Sent another one asking how many notifications were sent out today.

Reading the comments on Facebook - there were spats inside with the receptionist taking the flak, I disagree with that.

It seems that some 'chancers' had inevitably turned up but those in genuine dire straits who had applied did too. Imagine having no food/ fuel (for whatever reason) for yourself and/ or your family to be told that your 'application has been successful, so they turn up as instructed, to be told 'nah, sorry'..... I think that is cruel.

Im interested to know the figures you asked about, but to be honest, as regards this incident, I dont understand whats going on - admittedly I have no background knowledge of the system, but to me it seems on the surface, that a batch of welfare payments have been 'passed'and the people have all turned up to receive them . Its not uncommon in clinic appointments for instance for batches of people to all be given the same appointment time and then just Q. Im sure Im being naive here but I dont get how we know that some are genuine and some are false? (Given that its possible that many of a similar nature may be grouped under the same reference number. ) Ah, I get it - I missed the word UNIQUE pin . Sorry
