A friend of mine had to claim housing benefits a few months ago cuz his wife lost her job.
They got paid what they were supposed to get until mid of january 08 when the council decided to review their claim. They saw that he has some paypal transactions on his
bank statements and asked him for paypal statements for the last 2 months.
Does the council have a right to do this? (he sells unwanted things on ebay from time to time, privately, not commercially) It can´t really count as income, can it?
Thanks for comments/help in advance ;-)
