Mine Worker Catches out Fraudulent Ex-Wife

A paying parent who worked in a well-paid position in the mines, was assessed to pay hundreds of dollars per week to his ex wife for the care of their 16 year old child. The paying parent asked Cloak Investigations to substantiate reports that the wife was receiving substantial and undeclared rental income from her home while living at her mother’s house and that the child was living with a friend and was no longer in her care.

Our investigators made discrete enquiries and obtained recorded evidence from a tenant of the ex-wife’s home confirming all the facts. Further investigations revealed that the 16-year-old was indeed living with his girlfriend’s parents.

We subsequently passed the client on to our child support advocate who assisted him with a successful change of assessment that saw him paying a greatly reduced amount.

Deadbeat Dad Made to Pay Up

A single mother contacted Cloak Investigations frustrated at reports from her children that their father was earning cash in hand income through his photography business while declaring a nil income to the Child Support Agency.

Our undercover surveillance experts subsequently visited the non-paying father posing as potential customers. They were able to obtain covert video and audio recordings of the father discussing pricing, income and work hours and making an appointment for a photo shoot.

The single mother was subseqently able to get a change of assessment from the Child Support Agency and the deadbeat dad was forced to pay his dues.
