"”Sreload not by bidragsutredningen”"
"Anna Flink usually give the following advice to municipalities who want to find bidragsfuskarna:"
"– It is fine to make demands. Sometimes the social secretaries have been bad at it, just listened to a story. You must not be skidding through the investigation."
"– Many times it is an emergency situation where people report that they are in distress. I believe that many social worker is working a bit too fast, with the stresspåslag. You have to dare to say that ”I think it is something expected here”, instead of to pay out and think that ”I take this then”. It is easy to go on the helping the need to the full."
"the Police report against an ”unmarried” bidragsfuskande woman gives an insight into how carefully the social secretaries in Södertälje are working. They had found Facebook-pictures from the woman's honeymoon at a waterfall in Greece:"
"”X stated at the beginning of the visit that her boyfriend wont sleep with her during the weekends and that they had no plans to marry. Socialsekreteraren asked about the engagement and wedding ring as X had. X then removed the rings and said that there was no purpose with the rings. She didn't want to show up the rings."
"”We are married, but do not want to live together”"
"X then got to see a picture from her wedding that her husband put up on Facebook. X then stated that she is married but she does not live with her husband. X stated that she did not know about the wedding until a week before. X stated that they do not want to live together but that they are married. The husband lives in his apartment in Hovsjö and X in the Ronna. When X was asked if we can go home to her right after the visit so she declines. X receives information that when one is married, one is dependent towards each other, and if X wants to apply for financial assistance so both spouses apply together."
"X got to see the picture of the waterfall from Facebook showing that she had been abroad, 2017-09-10. X then stated that the picture was taken in Finland or Norway in connection with a drive. Socialsekreteraren ask how is it that they have summer clothes on, given that during the month of september is not hot enough to wear a hat and short trousers or a skirt. Finally, X it is she in the picture and that she had been in Rhodes. X stated that she can pay back the assistance she received for the month of september, 2017 and that she does not want to be reported to the police.”"
"All reported to the police ended the search grants"
"Even if the 21 police reports are so far not a single case has led to any convicted in the district court for the bidragsbrott, so there are clear benefits with the social action, showing the magazine Home & Rented review. "
"All reported to the police has stopped to apply for grants. The department has extended the cooperation with the social Insurance office, the employment service, the Swedish Enforcement authority and the Police, and working more preventively in the day:"
"– in the Past, we usually only out the money, but now we are investigating if they have the right to grant and ask more questions. If we suspect cheating, we tell it. This has led to many seeking contributions to withdraw their applications, " says Anna Flink."
