Welfare Fraud Rife Among South Australian University Students

Speaking on Triple M Adelaide this morning, Roo and Ditts were asking listeners for their ‘un-Australian stories’ when Wendy from the Adelaide Hills rang through.

Wendy, who works at a couple of universities in Adelaide, revealed that people are using the tertiary system to make welfare claims.

“We have people who enrol in a degree, register for classes and don’t turn up,” Wendy told Triple M.

“So they take away a spot from other people, but then they also get Centrelink payments for the whole year, even though they failed everything.”

Roo and Ditts refuted the claims, calling ‘bull dust “ on Wendy’s claims out of sheer disbelief.

“I kid you not,” Wendy stated.

“It’s shit me so much.

“I’ve gone to ring up a few times because I think it’s something that should be addressed on a national level because this happens all across Australia.”

Roo and Ditts claimed there should be a minimal ‘pass’ mark needed for people to receive their payments.
