Does anyone else have a problem with misinformation

€43 million paid out to survivors it proudly states on caranua website, should it not say, 43 million paid to business's to provide services to survivors as we are not trusted to make these payments ourselves, despite the fact the fund is being overcharged by certain companies and the cost of issuing those fexco vouchers, or the lies one has to come up with if you wish to keep your history private when dealing with service providers. Im sure theres a word for it,

Hi Michael, I have applied for financial help from caranua
was turned down was told no cash payments

Then I applied for help with replacing our garden fences after the winter storms here again was refused.
Was told by some advisor that my claim was not in the guide lines and that I could appeal their decision. That I did, have waited about 4 weeks to hear back from them, then today a letter arrived asking me to submit any comments I have on caranua have to do this for the Appeals Officer and before 23rd May 2016. I have already sent them info about why I was refused I am really pissed off being shunted back and forth with these people, but am not going away because this is what they want.

Hi Elizabeth, sorry to here that, it is highly unlikely pat whelan will side with you on appeal, he merely reverts to caranua and goes by what they tell him, he hasnt the balls or the brains to make his own decisions. Trust me they will keep the over and back going for months comments from you then caranua then rinse and repeat. Your only option after this is to employ a solicitor to go to the high court to go through any points of law. As a system it is so heavily weighted against that the mind boggles. I will send you a pm if i can and see if i can offer any help to you, cheers Michael
