A4e under investigation for fraud… AGAIN!

with 5 comments

A4e, poverty pimp, workfare pimp, experienced fraudster and serial thief from the taxpayers’ purse, is under investigation for fraud once again. On Friday afternoon, Thames Valley Police launched an 4 hour raid on A4e in Slough, demanding staff to hand over computer files and documents from the last 2 years.

DWP has confirmed there is another fraud probe into A4e. Police may also raid other A4e offices across the country. As it wasn’t simultaneous there is much chance for these records to vanish or be tampered with.

It is alleged that the fraud mostly consisted of sticking people into jobs for merely a day but claiming sustainable job outcomes.  No doubt, several million further British pounds will be wasted investigating these parasites, Emma Harrison and senior management will escape any criminal penalties and A4e will be left to undertake its current contracts in addition to new contracts in the future.

There has been much anger to workfare recently with the likes of Tesco (I think the word “likes” is misplaced here however), on top of welfare concerns of companies such as Atos and A4e… which could now erupt in more anti-A4e protests and actions occurring in the upcoming months.

  1. It’s not only A4E that’s open to fraud and error…

    Look at this link:

    Makes a change from all these headlines about the workshy bleeding the taxpayer dry.

    Let’s hope the real (corporate) fraud and error causes the collapse of all workfare.

    • Thanks Tobanem.

      If they can’t do this, what hope for the new Universal Credit system?

  2. Just a small point, an enormous number of the current unemployed arrived at the job centre very recently as a result of the banker inspired recession. These are often people who have worked all their lives until now, because they have paid into the system for years their unemployment benefit is CONTRIBUTION based, because they are in CREDIT with the system. It is their own money that is being paid back to them, when it runs out they receive income based benefits.
    So people on contribution based benefits are NOT getting taxpayer funded ‘hand outs’ the only taxpayer funding them is themselves. I’m sick to death of ‘holier than thou’ taxpayers claiming that all the unemployed are getting something for nothing. Do some research on the benefits system if you intend to comment on it. (Reading hysterical headlines in The Sun does not amount to research.)
    If the job centre send someone who receives contribution based benefits to a workfare placement at for example Tesco, they are effectively keeping themselves in poverty whilst lining the pockets of Tesco’s share holders.

  3. A4e only appear to be under investigation again because there are political points to be scored. Their results speak for themselves; they have successful schemes that do get people back into employment. Sadly they are caught in the crossfire and people seem to be ignoring salient pieces of information in order to formulate arguments against them.

  4. Well Kris
    Their results speak for themselves
    Indeed they do. I believe “abysmal” was the word used.
