The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We typically focus on alerting potential whistleblowers in healthcare, transportation, environmental clean up, or aerospace/defense contractors about whistleblower rewards, provided the employee possesses well-documented proof the company they're working for is overbilling the federal government. We were surprised to see a well known real estate company recently having to pay a significant fine for alleged overbilling.
"Our message is; if you work for any type of company that is overbilling the federal government, and you have well documented proof, we would like you to call us anytime at 866-714-6466, so we can explain federal whistleblower reward programs to you." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In July of 2014, the United States Department of Justice announced, RE/MAX Allegiance Relocation Services, a Virginia-based move management company, had agreed to pay the government $509,807 to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by overbilling for transportation services.
The settlement relates to allegations involving contracts to transport personal property of federal employees relocating duty stations within the United States and between the United States and Canada. The government alleged that the defendant charged for move management services that were not provided, and overbilled agencies on other moves by charging inapplicable tariff rates.
In this instance the whistleblower will receive $86,667.
