    You need to appeal. The first step is to talkto your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau. You can get excellent help on several facebook pages, I recommend 4UP, who don’t ask for payment.

    This is normal for the DWP. They hope you will just give up and go away. But if you appeal, you stand a good chance of winning. Get advice.

    You also need to keep a copy of anything you send to them and if you phone or they phone you keep a log of the date, time and their name. Good luck.

    Tell them you have a phone line for family internet but don’t have a phone connected to the line. so they better send you any appointment by post there are many that don’t have phones connected and do everything on-line, also tell them that they are free to call your number but will be wasting their time as no phone is connected. If they try to sanction you because of this you will impose a £200 penalty along with legal action for compensation of double they will sanction for.
