“Insiders who step forward and report this type of blatant abuse of taxpayer dollars are not only doing the right and commendable thing, but they can be rewarded handsomely for it
(PRWEB) December 16, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,“The Federal Government's appetite for private contractor food service providers is enormous. Public schools, the military, and many other government programs and organizations rely on private food contractors. Some of these private food service contractors defraud the federal government by overbilling for food, or food services, and we are encouraging insiders who have proof of this type of wrongdoing to contact us at 866-714-6466. The only catch is wrongdoing must be very well documented, and the fraud, or overbillling must exceed one million dollars."
An example of a food service contractor stepping over the line, a distributor of fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the United States and Canada, agreed to pay $4.2 million to settle claims they allegedly overbilled the government for hundreds of sales of fresh fruit. According to the lawsuit, the company allegedly marked up prices of fresh produce that was delivered to schools and troops. In this case, the whistleblower will receive $798,000 as a reward. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
“The government simply doesn’t have the resources to catch each and every instance of fraud,” says the Corporate Whistleblower Center. “Insiders who step forward and report this type of blatant abuse of taxpayer dollars are not only doing the right and commendable thing, but they can be rewarded handsomely for it. Whistleblowers can receive 15-30% of the settlement, which in many instances can easily reach millions of dollars.”
For more information about whistleblower rewards, insiders and employees providing food services to the federal government are urged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center any time at 866-714-6466. All information will be kept confidential. 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.”
- The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
