Interviews under Caution
If you have been invited for an benefit fraud interview under caution, it is important to remain calm and, whatever you do, don’t ignore the invitation. Failing to turn up for the interview could result in your benefits being stopped altogether, or even a criminal charge being brought against you. Remember – anything you say during the interview can and will be used as evidence against you, should your case be brought to court. It is also important to have a legal representative with you during the interview. Here at DPP, our dedicated team of solicitors are experts in benefit fraud cases, and have plenty of experience in representing the accused during their benefit interview under caution. The DWP or your council should only interview you under caution if they already suspect you of fraud.
