Looks like that you need to apply for a review

Sections 308 to 310 is involved.

this will mean that you will need to write and gain info from ACC and not just from the fraud unit.


this will show any attempt of you misleading the corporation and if you have not reported income as per section 310 to the ACC.

308.Offence to mislead Corporation—

(1)A person commits an offence who, for the purpose described in subsection (2) or with the result described in subsection (3),—

(a)makes any statement knowing it to be false in any material particular; or

(b)wilfully does or says anything, or omits to do or say anything, for the purpose of misleading or attempting to mislead the Corporation or any other person concerned in the administration of this Act.

(2)The purpose is—

(a)for that person to receive or continue to receive any payment or entitlement; or

(b)for another person to receive or continue to receive any payment or entitlement.

(3)The result is—

(a)that that person receives or continues to receive any payment or entitlement, whether or not entitled to it under this Act; or

(b)that another person receives or continues to receive any payment or entitlement, whether or not entitled to it under this Act.

(4)A person who commits an offence against this section is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or a fine not exceeding $5,000.

Cf 1998 No 114 s 375




309.Offence not to provide requested information to Corporation—

(1)This section applies to—

(a)an employer or former employer of a claimant:

(B)a person who has provided any rehabilitation to a claimant:

©a person who has sought or received any payment in respect of a claimant.

(2)A person to whom this section applies must provide the Corporation with any information or statement, when requested to do so by the Corporation, for the purposes of facilitating decisions about cover and the timely and appropriate provision of entitlements, or detecting fraud.

(3)A person to whom this section applies commits an offence if the person refuses or fails to supply, without reasonable excuse, the information or statement requested under subsection (2).

(4)This section does not apply unless the claimant has authorised the request being made and the person of whom the request is made has notice of that authorisation.

(5)A person who commits an offence against this section is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000.

Cf 1998 No 114 s 376


310.Offence not to provide earnings information to Corporation—

(1)This section applies to a person who is receiving—

(a)first week compensation; or

(b)weekly compensation.

(2)A person to whom this section applies commits an offence if he or she fails to advise the Corporation as soon as practicable if his or her earnings have increased after he or she began receiving compensation in such a way as to reduce the compensation payable to him or her.

(3)A person who commits an offence against this section is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $5,000.

Cf 1998 No 114 s 377

311.Goods and services tax not payable on penalties or fines—

To avoid doubt, goods and services tax under the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 is not payable in respect of any fine, penalty, or interest that is payable under this Act or any of the former Acts.

The gossip I have heard is that in the new Fraud Unit set-up headed by Mr Weddall, and Mr Lahman is the number two. He appears to still be responsible for withholding or releasing information about fraud investigations, and continuing with his policy of playing dumb and claiming to not know what information exists.
The appointment of Mr Weddall as head of the new fraud unit in December was not announced publicly and I am a bit miffed that he has not introduced himself to me, the forum or my associate as at a I guess we are generating a great proportion of the workload for the Fraud Unit. Perhaps I need to work a bit harder so I get onto his Christmas card list?
From dealing with Mr Lahman I guess his background is that of a government bureaucrat, and not a lawyer or ex cop or PI as are many of the staff within in the Fraud Unit. Anyone got any more reliable information?

You sent it to the right person Witchie, and you should get your file.
It is the requests that follow on from receiving your file, or OIA request on the functions and activities of the Fraud Unit that trips Mr Lahman up.

Does anyone know if Mark Lindsay LAHMAN refered to as a member of a Lower Hutt gang in this clipping and who would now be aged around 43years is a brother or in any way related to Tony LAHMAN of http://www.acc.co.nz/?????

Acording to a public record Tony LAHMAN states he himself is 45years old.

Nov 22, 2002

A member of a big Lower Hutt-based fraud gang who allegedly took $2 million in a two-year crime spree was sentenced to community service when he appeared in Lower Hutt District Court yesterday. Mark Lindsay Lahman, 34, unemployed, pleaded guilty to 14 fraud charges, three charges of theft and one drug charge. Police said the gang was involved in burglaries and thefts from cars and took documents and altered them to get money from victims' bank accounts. Lahman was a driver and lookout. Judge Geoff Ellis sentenced him to 320 hours' community work, ordered reparations of $7566, and disqualified him from driving for a year.

Does anyone know the exact year Tony LAHMAN commenced employment at http://www.acc.co.nz/ ?

What role did he undertake?

Is it correct he returned to school and attended Silverstream college in 1983?

It appears from his linkedin profile he may have had two stints with http://www.acc.co.nz/

One from 1979 - 1982 and then from July 1988 to current.

Our calculations suggest he left school aged around 15years of age and like his colleague Martin Williscroft who is now Project Investigations Manager at http://www.acc.co.nz/ was a school drop out.

http://www.oldfriend...ew.aspx?id=1180

It also suggests you don't need a Legal Quailification to be a Senior Memember of http://www.acc.co.nz/ staff.

Who signed their contracts?

Was it the one and only Barry DAVIS?

Partners in crime???

It is a known fact long standing people in trusted postions are often the most likely to commit Fraud and dishonesty within their organization and take the longest to detect.

On the surface, it appears as if, new Investigations Managers & Investigators have higher educational qualifications and experience to those in Senior Positions within http://www.acc.co.co.nz , if what they have put in their Public Profiles and Publically available information is correct.

Maybe the new CEO will get his broom and sweep out the longstanding dishonest, backside covering staff whom should have been removed years ago for their incomptetence and other behaviour that is unacceptable within the Public Service.

We would trust that those in such roles are regularly removed and changed to ensure the transparency such a role should have.

Doe anyone know how long as example Adam Feely at the http://www.sfo.govt.nz term is for? Or is it indefinite?

Updated Linkedin Profile Tony Lahman, he now has 56 connections and removed some of his past history...
Who's been busy on the internet then Mr Lahman?
Was not during employment hours, was it?
Maybe he can do us all a favour and fill in the gap in his CV where he was between 1982-1988.
It's not a good Professional look to have gapping holes in one's CV, is it?
We understand he had a stint in Singapore at this educational facility between 1977-1979.

the CEO, head of regional RIS and the fraud investigator, have not written back to me, since challenging his response!!!
(the fraud investigators response that is)

I received a "purported response" by the OCI on behalf of these 3 people.

I refuse to accept this letter as their response; as once again, an email addressed to a specific person, should be responded to by said person


I am now heartily sick of the gaslighting within my file, and the response from certain "investigators"

therefore, in forms and letter...please find yet another legal template, to be sent to the manager of intelligence and support services Mr Tony Lahman

if you suspect fraud within your file, then i guess it pays to go straight to the top, as the constant denials of said fraud are hilarious!

especilly, when there is all the proof you need, within the IT sweep file...which acc deny exist...

all important emails have now been photocopied and placed in storage, for presentation to the judge...including the recordings i have made.

Someone was asking if Tony Lahman is still at http://www.acc.co.nz , it appears from his linkedin profile he is.

He appears from his current linked in profile to have been with http://www.acc.co.nz for nearly 25 years - however copies of his earlier linkedin profiles on here confirm otherwise.

Tony Lahman would be due a tidy sum in superannuation & holiday payments & possibly other benefits should he resign.

We understand he may only be aged in his mid 40's.

If looking for further info about him, either put his name in top right hand corner search box of this forum, or Google search his name, plenty of resources out there to use in a positive manner.

We are not quite sure what he means by saying
:

"More recently I have implemented and intelligence functionwithin the Investigation Unit to assist ACC in developing intelligence led investigation untilising analysis and geospatial software to focus ACC resource on the areas where fraud is more prevelent."

Maybe http://www.acc.co.nz are an Equal Opportunity Employer & don't have issues with spelling errors like some on this forum do, alternately, we do understand he likes to have a drink so may have been inebriated when he updated his linked in profile, alternately, maybe he has a head injury that effects his focus.

Only he knows why he has written that he has "implemented and intelligence", instead of "an intelligence", spelt utilizing & prevalent incorrectly & missed a space between "function & within".

Now let's see how long it takes for Tony Lahman to edit or change his current linkedin profile :)

I have copied this from the above posting.
What the head of the fraud investigation team means is that he is creating statistical profiles of the claimants in order that he searches amongst the low hanging fruit for easy targets to accuse of fraud. Those who readily surrender their entitlements because they do not want to go through a fraud investigation/prosecution process and to this statistical profile in order that more and more as an increasing number become accused of fraud. This of course makes it very cheap to run the ACC fraud unit but it does not mean that they capture real fraudsters.
