Department of Work & Pensions / Benefits Cheque

1 Scunthorpe, England, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Review updated:

the DWP sent me a cheque on the 01.09.2006 for £409.50. This cheque was fraudlently cashed at a local Post Office. my complaint is against both the Post Office for failing to ask for Identification and the Police and DWP for not following this up. i have been trying to get a replacement cheque ever since, but the DWP said it "may have been fraudulent" and the Police said "there is not enough evidence"
i have a photocopy of said cashed cheque with the fake signature on. all that is needed is to see the CCTV from that day and spot who cashes my cheque in but it seems no one is willing to help me. I feeli have wasted two years chasing this, and i have no more ideas what to do.

    THE COMPANY WHO CASHED THE CHECK IS WHO YOU WANT TO GO AFTER. YOU CAN SUE THEM FOR THE AMOUNT OF THE CHECK OWED TO YOU IN YOUR LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT. IT IS ACTUALLY A VERY EASY PROCESS TO DO SO.

    I HAD THE SAME THING HAPPEN TO ONE OF STAFF. I SENT THEM A CHECK. THEIR COUSIN GOT THE CHECK AND CASHED IT AT A BANK, ALTHOUGH THE CHECK WAS NOT MADE OUT TO THE COUISIN. I SENT THEM THE CASHED CHECK, WITH THE STAMP ON THE BACK OF THE COMPANY THAT CASHED IT, , , , , , AGAIN, WHOEVER CASHED IT IS RESPONSIBLITY, GO TO ANY BANK AND IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A CHECK CASHED WITHOUT SEVERAL IDENTIFICATIONS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE. THAT IS WHY THEY RECORD ALL THE INFORMATION OFF THE PERSONS ID CASHING THE CHECK..JUST IN CASE THEY ARE NOT THE PERSON IN THE PHOTO ID...SO YOU NEED TO GO AFTER THE POST OFFICE, , ,

    IM SURPRISED THE POLICE DID NOT TELL YOU THIS. THE COMPANY WHO WROTE THE CHECK IS NOT RESPONSIBLE. THEY SENT YOU THE CHECK MADE OUT TO YOU. THEY DID THEIR PART.

    HOPE THIS HELPS YOU OUT, ALSO WHEN YOU FILE IN SMALL CLAIMS MAKE SURE TO TAKE AS MUCH EVIDENCE AS POSSIBLE, THE CHECK, AND A LETTER FROM THE COMPANY THAT SENT THE CANCELLED CHECK, THERE IS A SMALL FEE, HOWEVER IF YOU WIN, WHICH YOU SHOULD...THEY HAVE TO REIMBURSE YOU. THEN THE COMPANY THAT CASHED THE CHECK CAN GO AFTER THE THIEF THEY CASHED IT FOR AND FILE CHARGES, , , , , , , GOOD LUCK! BE PATIENT!
