WASHINGTON, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center Says, "We are urging an employee of any type of company involved in importing products from China to call us at 866-714-6466 if their employer is intentionally misclassifying the Chinese products to avoid US anti-dumping rules and duties. We believe the whistleblower reward potential for this type of information could be very significant as we would like to discuss.
"We would be also very interested in hearing from US manufacturers who can prove importers are evading US anti-dumping rules. In these instances-we would propose a collaboration to shut the importers down. One of the biggest problems we see with US anti-dumping policies by the Department of Commerce is their websites on the topic of anti-dumping are not coherent and their websites do not provide useful or meaningful information-especially when it comes to Chinese imports." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is interested in hearing from an employee of a company that is circumventing US anti-dumping duties by misclassifying specific types imported products from China. These imported Chinese products include but are not limited to:
- Bedroom furniture
- Rolled steel
- Cast Iron plumbing pipe
- Cooper plumbing pipe
- Hardwood flooring products
- Manufactured plywood products

On May 1st, 2017, the Department of Justice announced that a furniture importer agreed to pay $275,000 to resolve allegations that the company improperly evaded customs duties on imports of wooden bedroom furniture from the People's Republic of China. (PRC), in violation of the False Claims Act.
The settlement announced resolved allegations the importer evaded antidumping duties on wooden bedroom furniture imported from the PRC between 2009 and 2014, by misclassifying the furniture as non-bedroom furniture on its official import documents. At the time of the imports alleged in this case, wooden bedroom furniture from the PRC was subject to a 216 percent antidumping duty; non-bedroom furniture was not subject to any antidumping duties.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If an employee of an importer can prove their company is circumventing US laws to evade US anti-dumping fees and duties we are urging them to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 to discuss what their potential whistleblower reward could be. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what the reward potential could be?

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 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 company or individual to come if they are involved in a scheme to falsely label products made in China or to avoid customs duties on imported products. 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."
