Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

I'm suffering from high anxiety, stress, shock, confusion, annoyance, sadness, lonely.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

Very poor. Using a failed algorithm to swindle money away from the already poor and helpless.
Clearly their system is not working and how are people meant to remember where they were working 6 years ago.
This seems like a cash grab, on the already struggling people.
I feel that since they've used an algorithm, they need to supply evidence that you've done the wrong thing before being able to chase debt.
If push comes to shove, I will start a class action and sue.
They will need to provide evidence that there was an overpayment as this is not the first time I have been conned by Centrelink.
