Undergoing at the moment for my sons assessment for pip.sent all the recomended info off and now waiting for physical assessemant IE come to the house .every time I Leave the house with or without him I'm getting watched.they seem to know were I work go and they always use as different young girl to follow you in primark to using someone else to follow you through public transport .found out that they are using young students with mobile phones which I had that experience only 2 days ago on a tram in notts. And in another 3 different acations. They do watch you and it's blatant if you keep your eye out.im not doing anything wrong as my son can only get out a few times a year with spacial meds but these people are evil and are more botherd about keeping there jobs by cutting down numbers rather than thinking about how people are genuinely suffering.ie if you can get the person you care for to get out on a powerful drug for athew hours 3 or 4 days a year that's WHAT THEY ACCESS YOU ON.they are relentless and I hope they one day have there comupance

    I'm waiting for the time that the DWP will start using facial recognition software linked into all of the CCTV cameras in the UK. No need to follow anyone - the software will produce video images of people of interest carrying out their normal daily lives.

    @jej ...are you certain that you are being watched? The cost of a surveillance team must be massive - seems a lot to spend without there being some suggestion of a fraud.

    Come to think of it - it's a lot to spend even if there IS a suggestion of fraud.

    DWP will only watch people if there's fraud suspected. The wouldn't just watch people because they felt like it, that's ridiculous. Also, why would they be watching you? It's your son's PIP claim and not yours.
