(PRWEB) December 10, 2013

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Federal and state governments are increasingly relying on private contractors to provide them with IT support, software programming, and computers. These government customers range from school districts to police and fire departments, courthouses to the NSA, and the Department of Defense. Unfortunately, some companies abuse taxpayer funds by knowingly overbilling the government for services.”

In one recent example, CA (formerly known as Computer Associates), an IT company that provided computer software and servicing plans, agreed to pay $11 million to the state of New York, as well as seven other states, Washington, DC, and the federal government to settle charges it allegedly double-billed government customers. According to the suit, CA allegedly charged customers that included police departments and school districts renewal fees for annual software protection before their plans had expired. Once the government agencies renewed their plans, CA allegedly continued to double-bill, resulting in millions of dollars in alleged fraudulent charges. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

“Overbilling is not the only way software or IT companies are overcharging the government,” says a representative from the Corporate Whistleblower Center. “Taxpayers have a right to know their money is being used for effective products and services. The Obamacare website, which has been a disaster from day one, is a perfect example of a company billing the government for a product that didn’t work. Anyone who works for any type of software, computer, or IT company that is overbilling the government or providing a faulty product at taxpayer expense should contact us at 866-714-6466 for information about whistleblower rewards.” http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

Under the False Claims Act, whistleblowers may be entitled to receive 15-30% of the settlement as a reward. Any insider with proof of multi-million dollar fraud by a software, IT, or computer company can contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center or visit them online for more information. 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 could be 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
