WASHINGTON, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an employee of a company providing any type of imaginable service to the US Department of Defense or any other US federal agency to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is involved in significant overbilling or fraud. As we would like to discuss the rewards for this type of information can be substantial. In a recent instance a whistleblower will receive $38.85 million dollars for this exact type of information. We also want to emphasize the whistleblower does not have to be a US citizen; they just have to be able to prove the wrongdoing or have well documented proof and wrongdoing has to be at least a million dollars." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is especially interested in hearing from an employee with proof their employer is overbilling the US federal government for the following types of services anywhere in the world:
- A company providing transportation or logistics services to the US Department of Defense
- A company providing any type of food, fuel or security service to the US Department of Defense
- A company providing any type of service to the US Department of State including humanitarian initiatives, food or security.
- A company anywhere in the world that is overbilling the US General Services Administration on a contract.
- An employee of a US based company that is bribing foreign officials to gain work or to sell services or products.
As an example of what the Corporate Whistleblower Center is talking about-recently a Kuwaiti based company agreed to globally resolve criminal, civil, and administrative cases arising from allegations they overcharged the United States when performing contracts with the Department of Defense (DOD) to supply food for U.S. troops from 2003 through 2010. As part of the global resolution the company agreed to pay $95 million to resolve civil fraud claims.
The United States alleged the company knowingly overcharged the Department of Defense for locally available fresh fruits and vegetables, and falsely charged the full amount. The United States also alleged that the company failed to disclose and pass through rebates and discounts it obtained from U.S.-based suppliers, as required by its contracts.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If you can prove your employer has overbilled the US Government and the amount of overbilling is at least a million dollars please call us from anywhere in the world at 866-714-6466 and let's discuss how the reward program works. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.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 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 clean if they are grossly overbilling the US Department of Defense or any other federal agency. 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 is the premier advocate for whistleblowers in the United States. Unlike any group in the US, they can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging their information and providing the whistleblower with access to the most accomplished whistleblower attorneys in the nation.
