    Hi,

    8 yrs ago, I had an over PMT from Centrelink. I did go to court but there was no conviction and the debit has been paid in full.

    I was working in a role in 2013 and had to obtain a blue card do a check was done and there were no problems. I have recently started looking for work and I had to have a police check done and it came back with the offence:

    Obtain Financial Advantage

    Court Result: proved without conviction

    This is now affecting my ability to gain employment. My question is, how long will this continue to come up on a police check and is there anything I can do to clear it?

    Hi Victoria,

    It is a role working with children but I had a role with this company in 2013 when they also completed a police check and it didn't come out. As I said, I was only aware that it showed on my police check last year, but that was while I was working as a finance and insurance officer.

    My employer was ok after I explained what it was. As it was in NSW, I was also wondering how long this will haunt me for and if there is any way to have it removed.
