i recieved a letter today from the job centre saying?
we need to see you in order to discuss the benefit we are currently paying you because a query has arisen on your cliam. we need to ensure your payments are correct and it is important that you are available so we can discuss the matter further. you should note that where there is doubt about whether the conditions for entitlement are met, we can suspend payment of your benefit. a customer compliance officer wants to visit my home. what is this about?

This is the first stage of what may become a fraud investigation. Either someone has shopped you or they have other reasons to query your claim.
