we also urge admission officers, or administration staff at legitimate colleges and universities to call us at 866-714-6466, if they have proof an online school is engaged in this type of questionable recruiting practice
(PRWEB) June 10, 2014
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging employees, or insiders at Internet universities/colleges, to contact them at 866-714-6466, if they have well documented proof recruiters are being paid commission to enroll students. There can be lucrative rewards for well detailed examples of this information.
In a recent example, the United States Department of Justice filed a complaint under the False Claims Act against Stevens-Henager College, Inc. and its owner, The Center for Excellence in Higher Education, for allegedly compensating recruiters. Stevens-Henager operates a chain of for-profit colleges in Idaho and Utah.
In its complaint, the government alleged that the college falsely certified compliance with provisions of federal law that prohibit a university from paying incentive-based compensation to its admissions recruiters based on the number of students they recruit. Congress enacted the prohibition on such incentive compensation to curtail the enrollment of unqualified students, high student loan default rates, and the waste of student loans and grant funds.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Not only are we reaching out to insiders at online colleges, or what we call 'Internet universities,' with proof admission officers at the schools are being paid commissions for enrollments, we also urge admission officers, or administration staff at legitimate community colleges and universities to call us at 866-714-6466, if they have proof an online school is engaged in this type of questionable recruiting practice. We are strongly opposed to the fact that many of our nation's young people waste thousands of dollars to get a worthless degree from an Internet university, or from a bogus online college." 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. Its a huge 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 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. We say, come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think its 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, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
