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?

Someone has probably reported you for "black" working.

A Compliance Officer is a fraud investigator. They don't normally call you in unless they have evidence that you are committing benefit fraud. The interview will no doubt be under caution. Sounds like somebody has reported you for something.

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. If the visiting compliance officer decides there is some reason for suspicion you'll doubtless be summoned for interview under caution by a fraud investigator... More

They suspect either benefits fraud of some sort or incorrect benefits payments to you and want to interview you to check your current circumstances.
