Benefit fraud happens when someone claims benefits that they are not entitled to on purpose. This includes not reporting a change in circumstances.
Examples of fraud:
If you suspect that someone you know is committing benefit fraud, you can report it online or call the National Fraud Hotline on 0800 854 400.
If you suspect that someone you know is committing council tax fraud, email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org or call customer services on 01572 722577.
Your benefit may be stopped while you're investigated.
