Hi just WARNING to all  the nice people on scope We've found out more this morning if you receive an e-mail or text  supposedly from your bank or credit card company please contact them first as the scams are from Chile and China if you should ring the number on the e-mail or text even if it looks similar to your bank or credit card  company calls will cost £10 a minute even if it just rings & ring's then automatically cut off after 3 to 5 minutes lucky I had the sense to ring CARL58 bank yesterday but this morning I wanted to know more trouble is the bank blocks your account and sends out a new card and security code incase the scammers have more details than just your name I don't want to panic anyone just want people to be safe than sorry jen

    "This must not be allowed to happen"

    The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has published a contract notice announcing its plans for a £3.1billion revamp of heath checks for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and other benefits.

    PIP is not ESA or even UC, having one assessment for those benefits is morally wrong to treat them as ONE size fits all with that one assessment.

    DWP confirms single assessment plans, despite Tomlinson confusion

    The government has confirmed that it is pushing ahead with plans to test how it might be able to merge two disability benefit assessments into one, despite comments from a minister that appeared to suggest that no such plans were being discussed.

    But DWP has now made it clear to Disability News Service that testing of a single assessment will be going ahead.
