Received this in the snail mail yesterday. So good to know they are on the ball over this. We see the waste in government every day, and they are freaking out over 600 oxfords!

This made me go rushing off to my Netbank Account yesterday. The recovery of the said over payment, as shown in the letter, has already been done!

They (DVA) recovered it, on the very same say (05th July), no more than an hour after the incorrect payment via Direct Deposit was made! I also received a letter (snail mail) from my Bank (CBA) advising me of this weeks ago.

Pay attention to the highlighted text. One hopes that they do not 'go around the buoy'.
