Other government departments, tax office etc.
Data matching with all sort of places. People completely under estimate what the government had access too.
Anyone that's claiming a study related payment can also be found out when the uni submits their info to centrelink
*Fraud report (from third party - ie friend/family member)
*facebook (yes, they can check it)
*dumb luck (ie centrelink worker sees someone for Newstart, ends up going into a business that is paying them cash in hand - I've heard this one before, back when they had to go in to prove you were looking for work).
People knowing one's situation and dobbing them in - There's a welfare chat number you can call.
why would this be a study question
Centrelink had a report a fraud section where anyone can don in anyone else for anything.
I think you are asking for yourself OP because you are doing something wrong, I.E fraud/ripping the system, but making it look like it's a study question!
