falsifying claims ?

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by old_bloke, Dec 13, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So then,

    Does anyone have any idea of the fine / punishment for an individual caught falsifying claims; say 150 quid every month for say 6 to 8 months?

    Say they might be in their last few years and a SGT?

    And working away from the unit?

    And creating false hotel bills on their work computer?

    Hypothetical of course. :D
     
  2. A free stay at MCTC could be in order - if said individual is found out of course!

    Edited to add - and all "indiscretions" are usually found out on the various inspections that take place!

    Hypothetically, I would advise said SNCO to immediately pay back all monies in dispute and hope that the court martial looks favourably on this.
     
  4. I certanly hope so ! :twisted:
     
  5. why has it not been detected sooner...piss poor admin from his parent unit i would say !!
     
  6. You would have to look at it in a few ways. Firstly, is there any cash transactions being made? Secondly, is the person aware that he/she may not be entitled to a claim? Is it from the same person all the time? 8O

    Or is this just a blatant scam with best buddie working with cash? Why hasn't the auditor picked up on it? :(

    Too many if's and but's, however someone in authority should be notified.
     
  7. The certifying officer should face a GCM as well.
