Why did we build FraudStop?
Over 200,000 automated debt letters have been issued by Centrelink since they started their automated debt recovery system, and by their own admission, at least 20% of these are incorrect. That means a huge 40,000 false debt letters have been given to people.
Because of the enormous number of mistakes being made, legal experts have recommended that people consider submitting their debt for review, even if they're not sure if the debt amount is correct.
We have developed this website to make sure you can appeal a debt claim as quickly and easily as possible.
Disclaimer: GetUp is concerned about the overwhelming number of errors in debt letters currently being issued by Centrelink.
We have put together this website using information that is freely available online, to make your appeal easier. Nothing in this website should be taken as legal advice, however, before proceeding, you should consider whether this process is right for you. If you're uncertain, get in touch with lawyers who can provide you with advice personal to you.
By way of a guide, we recommend you seek legal advice if:
Before proceeding, note that very occasionally, a review may end up in you receiving an even higher debt. The likelihood of you receiving a better outcome far outweighs a worse outcome, but we can't rule this out.
If this occurs, we recommend you get in touch with Legal Aid, who may recommend you seek another appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
