The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We focus a lot of our efforts on Medicare fraud, but Medicare is just one of many areas where tax dollars are knowingly being misused. Recently, it has become apparent that all types of contractors are knowingly supplying the government with defective products. These products range from military equipment to plumbing pipes and everything in between.”
A recent example of this occurred in California, where a federal jury found JM Eagle, a pipe manufacturer, liable for allegedly defrauding government purchasers by providing pipe that did not meet industry standards. According to the suit, JM Eagle allegedly took production shortcuts that compromised quality and allegedly misled testing agencies in order to make the pipes appear higher in quality. The suit also alleged that as a result of the allegedly faulty pipes, cities will have to replace the pipes sooner than anticipated. While the damages JM Eagle will be required to pay have not yet been determined, the whistleblower in this case will receive 15-30% of the settlement. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
