Reporting Construction Contractor Fraud

Construction contractor fraud occurs when contractors cheat the public paying for the construction of courthouses, post offices, rail lines, prisons, airports, highways, bridges — any public construction work.

The False Claims Act is a powerful tool the government uses to fight back against fraud, using a combination of multiple rewards and penalties. It has been very successful in stemming the tide of fraudulent claims. Fischer legal Group of New York is a leader in working with whistleblowers to do the right thing while enjoying a portion of the proceeds.
