The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We believe taxpayers are being overcharged tens of billions of dollars per year due to contractor fraud. Insiders who expose this type of fraud are not only doing the right thing, and they are also eligible for substantial rewards.”
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, many insiders fail to report fraud against the government for a number of reasons. In most cases, employees are afraid of losing their jobs, and many they don't understand how large whistleblower rewards can be.
For example, according to a press release from the Department of Justice, General Electric Aviation Systems (GEAS), which manufactures and sells components for military and marine aircraft, recently agreed to pay $6.58 million to settle allegations that it knowingly sold defective fuel tanks to the Department of Defense for use in the F-18 fighter aircraft. The whistleblower in this case will receive over $1 million.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We fear that many defense contractor employees do not realize they are sitting on a winning lotto ticket. Rewards really can be in the millions, and we want insiders to call us at 866-714-6466.” Potential whistleblowers must be able to provide documented proof that a defense contractor is providing the Department of Defense or branch of the government with defective equipment or overbilling the government in any way. The wrongdoing must be over $1 million. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
