Insiders from military contractors, healthcare companies, schools conducting research on everything from cancer to environmental issues called us with proof of federal grant fraud.
(PRWEB) November 26, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Companies and organizations that fraudulently obtain federal grant money, and then misuse these funds are a much bigger problem than we initially thought. We recently encouraged people with proof of fraud involving multi-million dollar federal grants to contact us, and we are still receiving calls. We have been shocked at the number of insiders who have very substantial proof of federal grant fraud.” http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The influx of calls to the group came in response to a press release about a New Mexico-based government contractor that paid $11.75 million to settle allegations that it overbilled the United States for services. The company allegedly received six federal grants from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and Federal Emergency Management Agency to train first responders of terrorism attacks. According to the lawsuit, the company allegedly requested more funds than they actually used by stating they would use much more expensive personnel than they actually did. As a result, they allegedly knowingly overbilled the government.
“What surprised us the most about this response was the number of whistleblowers that came from such a wide range of sectors,” says the Corporate Whistleblower Center. “Insiders from military contractors, healthcare companies, energy companies, and even schools conducting research on everything from cancer to environmental issues called us with proof of federal grant fraud. We are still encouraging these types of individuals to call us any time at 866-714-6466 for more information about federal whistleblower programs, and we are all ears with respect to federal grand moneys being misused, or not being used for their intended purpose." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:
- Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake.”
- Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.
- Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information.”
Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com
