What Do I Need To Know When Contacting The IG?
There are several things to keep in mind when reporting fraud, waste and abuse. Immediate reporting is necessary, while facts are still fresh in the mind of the complainant. All reports must answer the questions who, what, when, where, why and how.
Who was involved? (Names, addresses, phone numbers, if available)
What happened? (Summary of events, additional sources of evidence)
When did it happen? (Date, time, frequency)
Where did it happen? (Location, city, state)
Why was it done? (Any known motive for committing such act)
How did it happen? (What scheme was used)
The most successful IG cases are those that include supporting documentation. Reports that are too vague or cannot be corroborated can result in a case being closed without any action taken.
