Submission + - eBay Helps Aussie Gov't Catch Welfare Cheats (abc.net.au)

beaverdownunder writes: From the Australian Broadcasting Commission: 'Data from online trading site eBay has helped Centrelink (the Australian social assistance agency) catch out dozens of welfare recipients who are not declaring big profits from internet sales.

Centrelink compared its payment records with the activity of 15,000 people who are running profitable eBay businesses.

It identified 25 people who must repay more than $800,000 in payments they were not entitled to.

Centrelink general manager Hank Jongen said some matters had been referred to the director of public prosecutions.'
