looking like i might have to get rid of my beemer :jaw-dropping

prob is i am on benifit and just been reported for benifit fraud lol

the car cost me little over 500 got 160k and the alpina 18"ers i had for free

put brand new tyres on back and parts on the fronts at a cost of 150

all the local idots in my street and my friends all say oh nice car, nice wheels,must cost you lots to run a car like that and it must have cost you a coupple of grand

its a near mint clean and shiny bm with nice wheels that uses the same on petrol as my 1.4 metro did

peoples perception of what a bm costs and what it costs to run is crazy

if i was working i would have bought a m3 :D

just spoke to the fraud inv team and there is 3 sep anon calls saying i am working so off to see some 1 at 1pm

so dont know yet if i am gonna sell and go back to 1.1 land or screw em



ah my rant over ....

If you are fiddling the system then I have no sympathy, not directly at you you but it gets on my nerves that people like me who work 2 jobs simply to have a decent quality of life after getting screwed each month in taxes and bills get f*ck all from the government if we should ever need it.

Yet there's sooo many people screwing the system and getting away with it for which the likes of hard working folks are paying for in addition to our government being about as much use as a wet sh!t.

If you are genuinely not working through the likes of serious health issues etc and someone is having a pop at you then thats another side of the coin.

So that means you can claim benefit, that us working souls pay for out of our taxes?

depends what benefit hes on, jobseekers dosnt really count but if hes on incapacity or dla then the alarm bells might start ringing as your only aloud these if you are actually ill, they also require a doctors note wich means lying like hell to the doctor, ive just had turburulosis so i had to claim incapacity and i was only getting 120 a fornight wich i could just about run my 1.0 polo on never mind the 5 series so he would need other income really to run the car, child tax credits, housing support etc, ive just had to claim again and because i am sort of able bodied im only entitled to a basic sort of benefit, i cant remember what its actually called but its employment allowance or summat, i get 100 a fortnight for that wich i can assure you will never see my car as i have other bills wich need paying.

before anyone says anything about me claiming, ive just come of a 10 month rehab from turbuculosis and ive had 4 operations on my heiny with another 2 expected, i am genuinly ill and cant work.

Fair play Ron. It's hard to exist having gone through what you have on that sort of benefit. If the sponging was stopped, then they could help the truly ill/recovering such as yourself to a greater extent maybe ?

sorry to hear of your probs cjack and you too ron.

cjack, it's a tricky one but my opinion is for you to keep the bimmer and enjoy it.

if you haven't done anything wrong i would just explain to the people you are meeting with about your car and good luck!

:)
