CSA take money from me incorrectly then tell me it’s my job to retrieve it!

February 27, 2018

In 2016 I received a letter from the CSA claiming that I owed £12,200 of arrears for my daughter who is now 37. The debt allegedly dated back to 1993 and ran to 1997. Apparently the CSA were transferring data from their old system to their new one and this debt had come to light. They chose to write to my ex asking if I still owed the money and guess what the reply was? Yes of course, even though I had paid for my daughter direct to my ex’s bank account and not to the CSA.

The CSA said I had to prove I’d paid her. I almost went insane trying to prove my innocence. Then after months and months of trying my banks said they had managed to retrieve my statements dating back that far. It took almost 12 months and by this time the CSA were taking money direct from my salary! I was very low and extremely depressed knowing that my ex had lied and tried to get more money after all this time. I tried writing to her and calling but to no avail and my daughter understandably didn’t want to get involved.

Today after almost 15 months of agony they have accepted the statements as proof of payment and then gave me the biggest kick in the teeth! Because they had sent the payments to her from my salary, the CSA said it was up to me to get a solicitor to get it back from her! The CSA are a useless and double crossing agency. This has driven me almost mad! My daughter is 37 I am 63 why? Because of a money grabbing ex-wife. The direct payments made to her totalled £24,530. The debt was less than half of that and she’s walked away with the lot! If any newspaper, political party, police constabulary want to get in touch with me, feel free! I’m spent have had no fairness and no closure on this!
