had fybromyaglia for many years and have been managing quite well recently .i received a letter from dwp ,a interview under caution . So I've been ,it was horrible and I was a wreck , apparently I've been over paid in esa and I didn't inform them in a change in circumstances ,my partner went back to work and my mother died last year after a long illness and I took charge of her finances before she died . I had 22 thousand pounds in my account to pay thr grandchildren and to pay her funeral bills etc . dwp say I have committed fraud and are investigating me and may be taken to court resulting in a sentence and a criminal record . I'm terrified a feel suicidal again carnt function or eat sleep etc . I also had to cope with a nasty divorce last year at the same time as my mothers death ,it has been the worst time of my life .
I told the interviewers I would pay the money back as I have now got my divorce settlement through and I had already informed them that I had received this ,so al my benefits had ceased anyhow . Absolutely terrified I might go to prison ,I've never been in trouble in my life for anything , not even a parking ticket ,
feeling desperate ........
