    I take it someone from the DWP has told you this is what has been accused? Usually if they think it needs to be investigated you will be invited for what they call "an interview under caution", they may ask you to provide bank statements at this point. How you prove you haven't been working is by answering their questions honestly, if you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear, do you receive any other benefits as well as ESA?
