    Do they DWP have access to my accounts? 26th Jul 11 at 3:07 PM

    I have just received a letter from the DWP asking me to go throw an under caution interview because they think there is a possibility of fraud on my benefits.

    I am getting housing and council tax benefit at the moment.
    When i claim the benefits i omitted telling them about all my bank accounts, i only told them about one but i hold two, plus some money in an e-account.

    My fear is if they now that.
    Can they have access to my details or am i protected by the privacy law?

    I am very worried of course at the moment and i would apreciate any advise.
