A4e Bradford: DIY kits to defraud the taxpayer

with 6 comments

A4e staff in Bradford went to Staples to buy DIY stamp kits to forge  Employment Verification Templates – the evidence requirement to claim job outcomes – under management orders. The latest revelations about how A4e works.

What staff at A4e Bradford did was with the newly purchased stamp kit, arrange the letters into words of genuine company names who didn’t authorise or know about, to stamp  Employment Verification Templates as evidence that a jobseeker is working for the employer.

This practice is also common-place in other A4e offices including those far away as High Wycombe.

In addition employer signatures were faked – some by hand (including tracing signatures from the fire register) and others electronically.

In Manchester, former A4e employees confirmed they did the infamous windowing technique (stick a sheet up to the window as a light source with the form on top and trace around the signature) we have previously mentioned a couple of years back.

This was mandatory practice (forging employer signatures and evidence) to keep your job.

No wonder why A4e and Emma Harrison CBE wanted to sue the world!! Too many people now…

  5. it must be the infamous “magic me one up” at work again.

    emma appears to have done a runner from the spotlight.

    the claims of damaging their reputation are unfounded,the figures speak for themselves.

    a mention of A4e at the job centre and at the gp brings the same faces of expression.

  6. My personal experince is that a4e is a fraud and i have unfournately used this service and got nothing from it.

    Whatever money going to it from taxpayers, its not going on the general staff, resources, equipment, building maintance etc. The money seems to be disappearing elsewhere. How is it that a service that gets paid hundreds of millions a year in government contracts isnt closely monitered?

    The service was useless, the resources were old newspapers back dated by several weeks and months where the jobs were no longer available. There was one landline phone to make telephone enquirers, there were 6 computers which were slow and outdated and not fit for purpose as they kept crashing. There were 40 – 50 people crammed into a small space, the staff werent even there they just went and left us in a room, they would be gone for hours. We were offered no support, advice or aid. How was a4e suppose to help me get a job? As far as I could see this company was a scam used to fiddle taxpayers money.

    I feel anger that this company can get away with such sysmatic abuse that is has got away with. I felt let down both by the company and by myself because it felt like I wasnt trying hard enough eventhou I was doing everything possible. This company as far as I could see uses those who are vunerable and at a point in there life where they have hit the bottom. After my experince I wanted to kill myself because I felt there was nothing to live for. Thankful I didnt go through with it.

    Emma Harrison should hang her head in shame, she is nothing more than a benefit thief in a mansion. She abused the vunerable to get where she is today and I for one will look forward to the day that the police investagations find evidence of the sysmatic abuse of this organisation.
