I've been in my iva for nearly 2 years now. They've just s÷nt email asking for my last 3 months bank statements. I'm really worried as I've been playing online bingo t9 try and win some money as last year due to covid19 I lost my job, lost tax credits, lost child maintenance money. My life as been turned upside down. What will they do to me? I'm scared to death.

As long as you haven't been going mad and have been able to pay for the bingo from allowances with no impact, there should be no issues. Hopefully, any winnings over £500 have been declared as a windfall.

I assume that you are coming up for your annual review. It may be that they will re-visit your level of payment due to income changes.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

Can you afford the IVA payments? If not, you need to be honest about that as that, not the bingo, is your main problem.
