    Default ATOS and the DWP yet again

    Hi just another poor soul needing advice

    As many thousands have I am at odds with the DWP and ATOS

    I am virtually housebound and have had a 'home' assessment, I thought I would be clever and I secretly recorded the whole interview via a hidden camera.

    The assessment was completed but it appeared ATOS and the DWP have simply 'reversed reality' and everything I could not do they have simply stated I can.

    I thought I could get them for fraud but again I am finding Solicitors 'unwilling' to help, what more could I need ? and do I really have to do this on my own even with real evidence of fraud ?? I would like to pursue a charge of 'Persecution' rather than fraud but I have now had no benefits at all for nearly 10 weeks and it is only for the excellent friends that I have that I am not homeless.

    There must be someone who will take this on, surely its black and white fraud ?

    Any help gratefully appreciated

    So I am guessing this is a claim for ESA?

    What stage are you at, have you had the decision and applied for MR?
    Next stage is tribunal

    I know it doesn't help you now but you do have to follow the process.

    With regard to the covert recording , the DWP will object to you using it as evidence in your appeal. have you told them about it?

    I know because at my Tribunal hearing for PIP they refused to allow a covert audio recording saying it breached the HCP's Human Rights. I am now at the stage of appealing to the UtT.

    Again I know it won't help you right now but there is legal aid to appeal to the UtT , Coventry law centre will do it for anywhere in England apparently

    Hi guys thanks for the quick replies

    I advised the DWP that the whole assessment was recorded via my home security camera ( not against the law in my own home apparently ), I thought this would rattle them into backing down but they just got worse.

    I was refused benefits on ( among other bizarre reasons ) A ' I wasn't dangerous to the public ( ??????? ), and B' I could use a mobile phone

    A' I told the assessor I avoided going out because I get aggressive in crowds, and B' I had no idea how to work my mobile phone when he asked me to find a phone number on it !!!!!!!

    I appealed to be told they fully backed the information given by the 'assessor' and that was that, I have been guilty of going a little off piste for a few weeks I have had a bit of a breakdown ( I decided against a painkiller induced visit to the DWP to prove they were wrong about how dangerous I am as I don't want to embarrass my daughter, no one wants to be the Benefits Butchers relation after all )

    So I had resigned myself to taking them to court on my own, but obviously being a mere mortal that's would be like a colour blind drunk trying to pilot a helicopter one handed whilst completing a Rubics Cube.

    I thought this would have been an open and shut thing but obviously video evidence isn't as conclusive as I thought, the best thing about this is that they sent the same assessor back to assess my partner ( she is on a back to work but not fit to be back to work, work plan ). If I was still as aggressive as the british army once described me he would have been in pieces on my lawn !!!!!

    Tribunal it is then, until a lottery win affords me the ability to form a military force and storm Westminster anyway, one day

    The mandatory reconsideration will have to done first. The will almost certainly reject the claim as they have a target to reject 80 percent of reconsideractions.
