(PRWEB) September 11, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "On August 28th 2013 the Justice Department announced a $61 million settle involving a contractor, and the General Services Administration. According the Department of Justice press release, the defendant allegedly marketed expensive materials to government purchasers without disclosing the availability of the same materials at lower cost, that were manufactured and sold by the company. We are convinced contractors over billing the government is a multi billion dollar problem, and we are urging whistleblowers to call us at 866-714-6466, if they possess significant proof, provided the wrongdoing exceeds a million dollars, because whistleblower rewards really do happen."
In this example the settlement resolves a qui tam, or whistleblower, lawsuit filed on behalf of the government. According to the Justice Department the whistleblower in this instance will receive more than $10.9 million as his share of the recovery in the case. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "As long as the whistleblower has proof of a contractor over billing the government out of millions, the rewards really can be significant, and we are offering to help potential whistleblowers package their information, and simultaneously we will get the potential whistleblower to the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation."
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistle Blower 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 mistake. Frequently government officials could care less, or they are incompetent."
- 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 wrong doing. 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. We urge you to come to us and tell us what type of information you have. If we think it’s sufficient, we will help find the right law firms that can assist you in advancing your information."
Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a private contractor is fleecing the federal government out of millions of dollars is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466.
