WASHINGTON, Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging employees or insiders with well-documented proof that a solar or wind energy company has defrauded the federal government with respect to a federal grant the company received to call them at 866-714-6466 because the potential for rewards can be enormous for this type of information. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes one untapped area for new whistleblowers are companies that received federal grant money for green initiatives such as wind or solar, which, rather than spending the money as specified via the terms and conditions of the grant, misused or squandered the money. In many instances the Whistleblower Center believes the companies potentially involved are fortune 500 companies, and the Center is urging whistleblowers with well-documented proof of this type of misuse of taxpayer's dollars to call them at 866-714-6466. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
According to CNN/Money, "In a 2013 report, the Brookings Institution put green stimulus spending at $51 billion. From 2009 to 2014, Brookings estimates the federal government will spend over $150 billion from both stimulus and non-stimulus funds on green initiatives. Nearly $100 billion of that will go towards supporting renewable energy, including subsidies for current wind, solar and biofuel projects as well as R&D for promising new technologies."

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are suddenly very, very interested in talking to any type of whistleblower who has well-documented proof a company took federal grant money and then used the money in ways not specified by the grant. Our only stipulation is, the federal grant must have been at least one million dollars or more. While we think green energy is a great target for misuse of federal grant money, we are eager to hear from anyone with information about misuse of any kind of federal grant, including a grant involving education, housing, energy, environmental or defense. If you have this type of information please call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:
- 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 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 huge mistake. Frequently, government officials could care less or they are incompetent."
- 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 you find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center emphasizes that they want to talk to potential whistleblowers with proof of significant misuse of a federal grant in any city or state, including Los Angeles, California; New York, New York; Miami, Florida; Houston, Texas; Boston, Massachusetts; Baltimore, Maryland; Roanoke, Virginia; Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Wheeling, West Virginia; Memphis, Tennessee; Charlotte, North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; New Orleans, Louisiana; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Saint Louis, Missouri; An Arbor, Michigan; Des Moines, Iowa; Indianapolis, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Fargo, North Dakota; Omaha, Nebraska; Wichita, Kansas; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Phoenix, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; Boise, Idaho; Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; or Anchorage, Alaska.
