You’ve obviously never dealt with Centrelink. An incompetent, feckless, vindictive organisation if ever there was one. The recent scandal concerning robodebt (the method of calculating such debts is considered confidential information by Centrelink) is illustrative.Might be more believable if there was something in the picture to show it was actually sent on 11 Jun and wasn't sent as evidence of the appt he claims he didn't know about. If he was telling the truth, it would be easily fixed with centrelink and he could have shared better evidence.

My wife was hounded for nearly two years by those b@stards over such an alleged robodebt. Her ‘agent’ was unhelpful, refused to correspond in writing as she demanded (to prevent her words being twisted), continued to shift the narrative and explanation for why the debt had been issued in the first place, lied about debt recovery mechanisms employed by Centrelink, and despite being advised that her debt was on hold pending resolution of the issue she got calls from debt collection agencies demanding payment of the ‘monies owed’. In the end they got a lawyer involved to assist in settling a debt that ended up being settled for less than $100 (one hundred).
Such a waste of money and time for all involved. Thankfully my wife retained all her receipts and correspondence relating to payments she received (a scholarship programme) so they couldn’t shaft her and were eventually forced to withdraw most of their claim. Their initial calculation was in the order of $9,000 so it’s easy to see that people who can’t defend their interests like my wife are in trouble when dealing with such a corrupt and malignant outfit.
