I'm being investigated by counter fraud, but not for giving in any dodgy evidence! The investigator has just said they are carrying out a number of checks to verify I am eligible.
Last year everything was fine, and then this year I received a letter saying I was being investigated.
They asked for tenancy agreement, council tax bills, car insurance details and 12 months bank statements. I supplied them with 3 months worth when I applied for student finance originally for my first year - so they know I was eligible. But they are asking for a whole year now - I gave them 4 months worth, but I'm refusing to give the rest - I've bought some stuff that is very personal and sensitive to me and it shows on my statements and I don't feel comfortable with it being seen.
I sent in the most recent 4 months. The investigator is refusing that it is enough - she wants 12 months. Because I said no, she's said she is in her right to withdraw my funding for 2015-2016! They have crawled the money back from my university and they are chasing me for £9,000 tuition and student finance are claiming back all the finance provided last year and have said they will not fund me for further study.
The investigator hadn't found I have done anything wrong! The information I provided last year was correct and I have handed over 4 months of recent statements! But she is still withdrawing funding. Has this happened to anyone before? Have you appealed!? What's happened? Please somebody help me!
