Cellular fraud is defined as the unauthorized use, tampering or manipulation of a cellular phone or service. At one time, cloning of cellular phones accounted for a large portion of cell fraud. As a result, the Wireless Telephone Protection Act of 1998 expanded prior law to criminalize the use, possession, manufacture or sale of cloning hardware or software. A primary type of cell fraud is subscriber fraud. The cellular industry estimated that carriers lose more than $150 million per year due to subscriber fraud. What is Subscriber Fraud? Subscriber fraud occurs when someone signs up for service with fraudulently obtained customer information or false identification. Lawbreakers obtain your personal information and use it to set up a cell phone account in your name. Resolving subscriber fraud could develop into a long and difficult process for victims. It may take time to discover that subscriber fraud has occurred and an even longer time to prove that you did not incur the debts. Call your carrier if
Leicester University recently conducted a survey among a representative sample of 2,000 people, asking whether they would commit fraud if they knew they could get away with it. Disturbingly, seven in 10 admitted they would. So it is not surprising that, according to research from CIFAS, a not-for-profit membership-based fraud prevention service, out of 127 organisations all but two had experienced employee fraud. About 1,500 employees are dismissed for fraud each year, but they are only the ones who are caught. As Alison Loveday, managing partner at law firm Berg Legal says: Employee fraud is a growing issue in the UK. It has risen by 30% in the past year alone, and now costs the UK about £1bn each year, the highest in 10 years.. Types of fraud. The government is the UKs largest victim of employee fraud, but financial firms are a close second. Stephen Fox, senior partner at Betesh Fox, a law firm that specialises in fraud, says: Very often employees committing fraud dont even think they ...
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Auditing Standards Board issued Statement of Auditing Standard, No. 99 (SAS #99): CONSIDERATION OF FRAUD IN A FINANCIAL STATEMENT AUDIT in October 2002 and it became effective for audits of financial statements for periods beginning on or after December 15, 2002.. The HCDE Fraud Prevention Model and Awareness Program supports SAS #99 by communicating to management and others an awareness and understanding of fraud, and educating management about fraud and the types of controls that will deter and detect fraud. The Business Services division alone cannot prevent and/or detect all the types of fraud that may be perpetrated within HCDE. It takes all HCDE employees being aware and knowledgeable that fraud could occur to possibly prevent fraud from occurring or even detecting a fraud that has occurred.. All HCDE personnel, especially management personnel, have the responsibility to:. ...
A typical organization loses an estimated 5|span class=percent||/span| of its yearly revenue to fraud. This course shows how learning fraud patterns from historical data can be used to fight fraud. The course discusses the use of supervised learning (using a labeled data set), unsupervised learning (using an unlabeled data set), and social network learning (using a networked data set). The techniques can be applied across a wide variety of fraud applications, such as insurance fraud, credit card fraud, anti-money laundering, healthcare fraud, telecommunications fraud, click fraud, tax evasion, and counterfeiting. The course provides a mix of both theoretical and technical insights, as well as practical implementation details. During the course, the instructor reports extensively on his recent research insights about the topic. Various real-life case studies and examples are presented for further clarification.

Fraud in the construction business is commonplace and in some cases endemic across Australia, Canada, India, the UK and the US, according to a new report from Grant Thornton, amassing a global price tag of up to $860 billion today-between 5% and 10% of total revenues. The accounting and advisory group projects that annual fraud cost in the sector could rise to $1.5 trillion by 2025.. The greatest threat of fraud comes from within-from employees and senior management, said David Malamed, fraud expert at Grant Thornton Canada.. While the risk of insider fraud is highest, the odds of fraud in a construction project increase drastically with the number of stakeholders. The primary sources of major frauds in the sector include billing fraud, bid rigging, money laundering or tax avoidance, theft or substitution of materials, bribery or corruption, false representation (of documents, figures, certificates), change order manipulation and fictious vendors, LiveMint reported.. Individuals and ...

Editor, the Advocate: Your recent story about fraud in the utilities billing/collection of the city of Goliad reminded me of reading four years of reports in which the auditor recommended a post office mailbox to deter fraud. I quote from the letter to the council of May 24, 2013: We recommend that management consider establishing a fraud hotline with a third-party service provider. Alternatively, the city could obtain a post office box to be used by city employees to report fraud anonymously. The post office box should be checked periodically by an individual not employed by the city (e.g., an appointed City Council member). The very existence of a formal anonymous avenue for reporting fraud would serve as a deterrent to misconduct by creating among employees a perception that fraud would be detected and reported. It would also demonstrate the citys serious intent to prevent and detect fraud. In addition, the hotline or post office box could also be used to report incidents of harassment, ...

The insurance industry in the United States consists of more than 5,000 companies with over $1.8 trillion in assets. The insurance industry is one of the largest and most interdependent of the United States industries, making it a critical U.S. industry. Insurance fraud has become one of the most prevalent and costly white-collar crimes. According to a published study by the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud (CAIF), fraud is among the most prominent cost components escalating the costs of insurance.

In 2004, the Law Society issued a Notice to the Profession warning real estate practitioners about real estate fraud. Lawyers should review this Notice to the Profession. The Law Society released an information report on mortgage fraud (pdf) in March 2005 that summarizes the issue and its scope, gives an overview of the mortgage process and opportunities for fraud to occur, and summarizes what the Law Society and its partners in the mortgage industry are doing to prevent and reduce fraud. The Law Society has developed a number of resource materials to assist lawyers involved in real estate transactions to heighten their sensitivity to the warning signs of fraud, to learn ways to protect themselves, and to comply with their ethical obligations if acting in a transaction where a client is or may be committing a fraud. The Law Societys Practice Management Helpline is also available to provide assistance to lawyers with ethical questions on the topic and can be contacted at 416 947-3315 begin_of_the_skype
Fish, honey, olive oil, milk, select spices (saffron, black pepper, chili powder), fruit juices, meat, grains and organic foods are among the top food products at risks for food fraud.. What is Food Fraud?. There is no statutory definition of food fraud, and different countries, researchers and industry groups have defined it in various ways. However, food fraud is most commonly referred to as the intentional defrauding of food and food ingredients for economic gain. Food fraud is estimated to cost the global food industry $10-$15 billion a year.. Food fraud can occur in a variety of situations. Food or food ingredients may be substituted for lower-quality, inferior ingredients, or one species for another. Food ingredients may be diluted with water, or main ingredients may be omitted or removed.. Some producers deceive consumers, manufactures, retailers, and governments for the sole purpose of making money. Many consumers are not interested in how the food they consume is produced or where it ...
In microcap fraud, stocks of small companies of under $250 million market capitalization are deceptively promoted, then sold to an unwary public. This type of fraud has been estimated to cost investors $1-3 billion annually.[17] Microcap fraud includes pump and dump schemes involving boiler rooms and scams on the Internet. Many, but not all, microcap stocks involved in frauds are penny stocks, which trade for less than $5 a share.. Many penny stocks, particularly those that sell for fractions of a cent, are thinly traded. They can become the target of stock promoters and manipulators.[18] These manipulators first purchase large quantities of stock, then artificially inflate the share price through false and misleading positive statements. This is referred to as a pump and dump scheme. The pump and dump is a form of microcap stock fraud. In more sophisticated versions of the fraud, individuals or organizations buy millions of shares, then use newsletter websites, chat rooms, stock message boards, ...
Employees are often the first ones to detect fraud. Organizations that have anti-fraud training programs experience less-costly losses, quicker resolutions of fraud cases, and an enhanced reputation for customer protection, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).. Organizations around the world lose an estimated 5 percent of annual revenues to fraudulent activities, an ACFE study found. Forty-two percent of fraudsters were found to be employees, 38 percent managers and 18 percent owners/executives, according to the 2012 Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud & Abuse. Accounting was the most common area of employment for fraud perpetrators, representing 22 percent of cases. Operations ranked second at 17 percent. A majority of fraudulent activity in the United States occurs in small businesses.. ACFE urges organizations worldwide to participate in International Fraud Awareness Week, Nov. 3-9, 2013, to help focus attention on this urgent issue.. The campaign ...

Drastic increase in E-commerce has lead to an evolution of credit cards where they act as the navigators to an evolving environment. However, this dramatic increase has also resulted in frauds in credit card transactions. Furthermore, over decades, the technologies have changed, developed and evolved dramatically to give entirely a new face to such frauds. In reality, fraudulent transactions are often amalgamated with genuine transactions. Numerous techniques have been designed to detect and prevent such frauds. Few such approaches include Hidden markov model, Neural network, Decision Tree and so forth. However, these techniques fail to decrease the number of false alerts where in cases of fraud are intimated to the users even when no frauds have actually occurred. In this paper, we present a technique to detect frauds using a combination of one of the novel approach called the Genetic Algorithm and Data mining. Genetic algorithm aims at providing an optimal solution to the problems of ...

Firms in Ontario and Tennessee notified us that they received an email from the purported Ng Weng Wei of Santak Metal Manufacturing Ltd looking to retain them with regards to a breach of a copyright agreement.. This appears to be a bad cheque scam (likely impersonating a real company) that presents as legal matter requiring the assistance of a lawyer. In this scam lawyers will be duped into wiring real funds from their trust accounts after depositing a fake cheque received as payment from the debtor (who is part of the fraud). See our Confirmed Fraud Page for more of an explanation of how these frauds work and other names associated with it , and our Fraud Fact Sheet for a list the red flags of a bogus legal matter that is really a fraud..

IBM has assimilated a German payment fraud prevention business, IRIS Analytics, a provider of a real-time fraud analytics engine using machine learning algorithms, for undisclosed terms.. By integrating IRIS Analytics with IBMs counter fraud technology, we will help organisations more accurately detect fraud at scale and speed so theyre in a position to implement countermeasures quickly, said Alistair Rennie, general manager of Industry Solutions at IBM, while at the same time assisting with dramatically lowering false positives.. Banks typically detect fraud after the fact, and take on average four days to deploy counter-measures. Combined with the increasing sophistication of online menaces, this has left Big Blue reckoning it makes sense to expand in prevention technologies.. Defenses against financial crime are in critical need of innovation and improvement, said Constantin von Altrock, IRIS Analytics CEO. As the payments industry evolves with new payments methods, the ability for ...
As insurance fraud rises, many insurers are looking to improve their fraud defenses by reviewing and enhancing their claims and new business processes, and investing in enhanced technologies. While the biggest challenge fighting fraud is the volume and variety of the fraud itself, other challenges include siloed business units, poor data quality, changing tactics, limited view, manual analysis and false positives.. The first line of defense in detection is and should remain the claims handlers themselves. An analytics approach to fraud detection acts as a second line of defense by making use of the underlying claims and policy data to automatically identify suspicious claims and networks of claims that claims handlers dont see. But beyond monitoring transactions, an extended approach is needed for monitoring customer behavior across multiple claims and lines of business in order to identify customers that may appear normal on the surface yet operate below the radar.. ...
The fraud environment in Alaska is a lot deeper than you realize, said Don Krohn, who spent 18 years with the Anchorage Police Department.. Peninsula Crime Stoppers teamed up with First National Bank of Alaska to bring Krohn, First National Bank of Alaskas security officer, and Michelle Wamack, FNBAs card fraud investigator, to Soldotna to educate local business people about protection from fraudsters Wednesday at the Donald E.

It should be obvious to everyone why scientific and medical integrity is so important. But why is it then that people are willing to address the blatant scientific and medical fraud in some areas, but not in others? The time is long passed to internationally expose, condemn, and deal strictly with the massive, in-your-face, and dangerous scientific and medical fraud so prevalent in human embryology and human molecular genetics that has consumed bioethicists/ethicists, researchers, clinicians, and the drug industries involved in the human embryo research, human cloning, human stem cell research issues for decades now. Scientific fraud is scientific fraud -- regardless of the area of science or medicine in which it is perpetuated -- and the damaging consequences to individuals and society are just as devastating. Often not realized is that sooner or later issues in one area of science and medicine are transferred to other issues in other areas -- and hence the fraud too is transferred as well.

Anyone who has married an immigrant may be wondering what is marriage fraud. Marriage fraud is a common concern amongst individuals who are marrying an immigrant who is trying to become a citizen. Some people find that they have become victims of marriage fraud without even realizing it.. Marriage fraud is an act of marriage that occurs with a desire for an advance in lifestyle rather than love. Many immigrants find it extremely difficult to obtain citizenship on their own. They will turn to marriage in order to receive a valid citizenship, because it is an easier process. The married couple will have to prove their knowledge of each other, show finances that they share, and clearly demonstrate the need for their spouse to achieve citizen status. The couple will have to go through an aggressive interview process with the immigration board before a citizenship is awarded. A good indication of marriage fraud would be the desire or act of divorce after a two year period of marriage. If the couple ...
Fraud is a criminal act. The legal definition of fraud is:. Some deceitful practice or willful device, resorted to with intent to deprive another of his right, or in some manner to do him an injury.. The Legal definition of a conspiracy is:. A combination or confederacy between two or more persons formed for the purpose of committing, by their joint efforts, some unlawful or criminal act.

All of the information strongly suggesting this possibility is readily available in the public domain. Anyone can read it.. For there to be a fraud the deceit must be wilful. The intention must be to deliberately deprive others of their rights or injure them in some other way.

Flamboyant former hedge fund manager Florian Homm has been arrested-in a suitably theatrical way-and will be extradited to the United States to face fraud charges.. Homm, a German, was picked up in Florences famed Uffizi Gallery, home to some of the worlds great art treasures, at 12:30 p.m. on Friday. Two days earlier, he was charged with defrauding investors in his Absolute Capital Management of US$200 million in Los Angeles.. Homm faces up to 75 years in prison on the conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud counts. He also faces civil fraud charges filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission.. Homms arrest comes four months after he briefly reappeared after five years on the run to flog his memoir, Rouge Financier. The book tells the story of those five years, spent mostly in Colombia, where Homm was shot in 2006, and of Homms abandonment of his high-flying ways, which he called the utmost level of excess. He denied hiding from allegations that he had ripped off ACM investors, ...
The following is excerpted from the Explanation of the Honor System posted at http://www.virginia.edu/honor/proc/fraud.html. All students at the University of Virginia are bound by the Honor Code not to commit Academic Fraud, which is a form of cheating. Academic fraud includes: Plagiarism: Plagiarism is using someone elses ideas or work without proper or complete acknowledgment. Plagiarism encompasses many things, and is by far the most common manifestation of academic fraud. For example, copying a passage straight from a book into a paper without quoting or explicitly citing the source is blatant plagiarism. In addition, completely rewording someone elses work or ideas and using it as ones own is also plagiarism. It is crucial that students properly acknowledge all ideas, work and even distinctive wording that are not their own. However, certain information in any discipline is considered common knowledge and may be used without acknowledgment. What is considered to be common ...

He told his audience Monday he has not done many segments on voter fraud since January, which included the U.S. Capitol riot and President Joe Bidens inauguration, noting how there have been multiple unfounded claims. But Carlson also said there is good reason to explore some of the allegations more than eight months after the November election.. There are some very irresponsible claims going around that in the end couldnt be proven because they werent true, but there are also some claims that may be true, and its worth knowing, he said. If you care about democracy, you cant tolerate fraud, so was there voter fraud in November? Well again, on Wednesday, we are going to take a very close look at that, including some new evidence from Fulton County, Georgia.. ...

Results Error was more common than fraud (73.5% of papers were retracted for error (or an undisclosed reason) vs 26.6% retracted for fraud). Eight reasons for retraction were identified; the most common reason was scientific mistake in 234 papers (31.5%), but 134 papers (18.1%) were retracted for ambiguous reasons. Fabrication (including data plagiarism) was more common than text plagiarism. Total papers retracted per year have increased sharply over the decade (r=0.96; p,0.001), as have retractions specifically for fraud (r=0.89; p,0.001). Journals now reach farther back in time to retract, both for fraud (r=0.87; p,0.001) and for scientific mistakes (r=0.95; p,0.001). Journals often fail to alert the naïve reader; 31.8% of retracted papers were not noted as retracted in any way. ...

Douglas A. Henderson, 47, of Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Friday to 4 years in prison and ordered to pay $12.1 million in restitution to Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield for fraudulent billings for services never performed. The sentencing had been delayed 10 times. In April 2006, Henderson pleaded guilty to separate felony counts of health care fraud, conspiracy and income tax evasion. According to prosecutors, between January 1995 through 2002, Henderson billed Highmark for services never performed on patients of the now-defunct Burrell Chiropractic Clinic. Fifteen other individuals have been charged in this case. Hendersons fraud allowed him to live lavishly with several homes, a fleet of luxury vehicles and a country club membership, among other things. He did cooperate in the prosecution of the other 15 individuals, who have all been convicted or plead guilty. Henderson, who masterminded the largest health care fraud in Western Pennsylvania history, is quoted as saying, My ...
Introduction. Counterfeit medicines are found everywhere in the world ranging from random mixtures of harmful toxic substances to inactive and ineffective preparations. Some contain a declared, active ingredient and look so similar to the genuine product that they deceive health professionals as well as patients. But in every case, the source of a counterfeit medicine is unknown and its content unreliable. Counterfeit medicines are illegal in Malaysia. They can result in treatment failure or even death. Eliminating them is a considerable public health challenge.. Defination. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines counterfeits medicines as medicines that are deliberately and fraudulently mislabelled with respect to identity and/or source. Both branded and generic products are subject to counterfeiting. Counterfeit medicines may include products with the correct ingredients or with the wrong ingredients, without active ingredients, with insufficient or too much active ingredient, or with ...
Durable medical equipment fraud is one of the leading ways criminals commit health care fraud. Here are some ways you can protect yourself.
Recently I have noticed that both the Internal Revenue Service website and the website for the Office of the United States Trustee have published a great deal of material about bankruptcy fraud. What exactly is bankruptcy fraud and how can you avoid doing things that might put you at risk?. In the consumer bankruptcy area, the cases I have seen that fall into the description of bankruptcy fraud usually involve an intentional failure to disclose an asset or they involve an undisclosed transfer of an asset. I remember, for example, meeting with a potential client had recently been laid off from a six-figure job, and had found himself barely scraping by working part time in a retail store. He was prepared to surrender his expensive home and car, but he was not happy when I told him that the Rolex watch he had received as a gift from his ex-wife would have to be disclosed.. This gentleman did not understand that just because no one would know about his expensive watch, it still had to be ...
On Oct. 16, 2012, Vernon Harrison, of Montgomery, Ala., was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring to file false claims, mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and embezzlement from the mail, the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the U.S. Postal Service, Office of the Inspector General (OIG), announced today after the indictment was unsealed.. According to the indictment, Harrison was a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier who was part of a stolen identity refund fraud conspiracy. Members of the conspiracy filed false tax returns using stolen identities from various locations including the Northern District of Alabama. The fraudulent tax refunds were directed to debit cards that were mailed to addresses on Harrisons postal route in Montgomery, Ala. Harrison retrieved the debit cards from the mail and, for a fee, provided them to a co-conspirator. An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and the defendant is presumed innocent until ...

The increase in crimes of identity theft led to the drafting of the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act.[54] In 1998, The Federal Trade Commission appeared before the United States Senate.[55] The FTC discussed crimes which exploit consumer credit to commit loan fraud, mortgage fraud, lines-of-credit fraud, credit card fraud, commodities and services frauds. The Identity Theft Deterrence Act (2003)[ITADA] amended U.S. Code Title 18, § 1028 (Fraud related to activity in connection with identification documents, authentication features, and information). The statute now makes the possession of any means of identification to knowingly transfer, possess, or use without lawful authority a federal crime, alongside unlawful possession of identification documents. However, for federal jurisdiction to prosecute, the crime must include an identification document that either: (a) is purportedly issued by the United States, (b) is used or intended to defraud the United States, (c) is sent ...

A letter report issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins Federally funded at about $5 billion a year, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides financial assistance to low-income households for heating and cooling costs. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awards LIHEAP funds based on low-income populations and other factors. Grantees--states, the District of Columbia, territories, and Indian tribes and tribal organizations--then provide energy assistance payments to low-income households. GAO was asked to audit (1) the risk of fraud and abuse in LIHEAP in selected states; (2) case studies of fraudulent, improper, and abusive LIHEAP activity; and (3) key weaknesses in the design of LIHEAPs internal controls framework. To meet these objectives, GAO analyzed LIHEAP data from seven states for fraud indicators, interviewed federal and state officials, performed investigations, and conducted proactive testing in two states using a bogus

Saying that negative media coverage could cripple his chances at re-election, Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector Chriss Street is asking a bankruptcy judge to postpone his fraud trial until after voters decide whether he should keep his office.. Street, who was elected in June 2006, was trustee of the former Fruehauf Trailer Corp. from 1998 until he was forced out in August 2005. His successor as trustee, Los Angeles investment banker Daniel Harrow, sued him in bankruptcy court in February 2007 for $7 million, alleging fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.. In a motion filed Dec. 22, Street says that if the trial begins in February as scheduled, his opponents could manipulate the negative media attention, and would be given the opportunity and ability to poison the political environment, and quite possibly steal the election. Street is running unopposed, but other potential candidates have until March 10, 2010, to join the race. Voters will cast their ballots in June.. ...

COSO sponsored this study, Fraudulent Financial Reporting: 1998-2007, to provide a comprehensive analysis of fraudulent financial reporting occurrences investigated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) between January 1998 and December 2007. This study updates our understanding of fraud since COSOs 1999 issuance of Fraudulent Financial Reporting: 1987-1997. Some of the more critical findings of the present study are:. There were 347 alleged cases of public company fraudulent financial reporting from 1998 to 2007, versus 294 cases from 1987 to 1997. Consistent with the high-profile frauds at Enron, WorldCom, etc., the dollar magnitude of fraudulent financial reporting soared in the last decade, with total cumulative misstatement or misappropriation of nearly $120 billion across 300 fraud cases with available information (mean of nearly $400 million per case). This compares to a mean of $25 million per sample fraud in COSOs 1999 study. While the largest frauds of the early 2000s ...

MAURITIUS based Flyafrica Limited, which owns 49 percent of low cost airline Flyafrcia Zimbabwe, says its local partners acted unilaterally and illegally when they surrendered the Airline operator Certificate (AOC) to aviation authorities this week.. Flyafrica Zimbabwe is a partnership between the Karase familys Fresh Air and Flyafrica Limited.. The company said in a statement on Wednesday the move was in retaliation for fraud and theft charges involving $140,000 which had been filed against an unnamed member of the Karase family on Tuesday.. The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) on Wednesday grounded the airlines aircraft following the surrender of its AOC.. This conflict is deeply troubling to us, however we cannot allow theft of such a large-scale to go unresponded, said chief executive Adrian Hamilton-Manns, adding that the move by the Karase family was designed to tarnish the companys brand.. Hamilton-Manns said Flyafrica limited had suspended its local partner for breach ...
While whistleblowing is a bottom-up solution to tackling unethical practices, technology can offer a top-down alternative. The EMEIA survey highlights how advances in technology have given companies access to new information, insights and ways of working that can help in the fight against fraud, bribery and corruption.. By focusing on behavioral patterns such as anomalies in employee work hours, attempts to access restricted work areas and the use of unauthorized external storage devices, companies can identify individuals who may pose a higher risk to the business.. Despite the need to collect such data, the survey identified a tension between opinions about what channels companies should monitor and the types of surveillance that their employees consider a violation of privacy. Companies should bridge this gap by raising awareness of the importance of collecting such data and of the potential consequences if company data is leaked or stolen. Employees need to understand that companies can ...

Below is a 30 sec public service announcement about avoiding new Medicare card scams. For some background, new Medicare cards will start being mailed to beneficiaries in April 2018. The cards will have new identification numbers not linked to Social Security numbers as a way to help prevent fraud and protect people from ID theft.. Yet, as with any new change, scammers like to take advantage of possible confusion. Beware of scammers asking to verify your Medicare number and/or asking for money to mail your new card. Medicare will never call asking for your number; they already have it and the new cards are sent free of charge..

Most, if not all, of the recent major settlements recovered by the Justice Departments Civil Division fraud section were driven by whistleblowers, says former DOJ senior counsel Eva Gunasekera, who is of counsel in the Washington, D.C., office of Finch McCranie, an Atlanta firm with strong practices in whistleblower representation, monitorships and compliance.. The False Claims Act remains the governments primary civil enforcement tool , says her colleague, Renée Brooker, who is of counsel at Finch McCranie in Washington, D.C., and a former assistant director in the civil division. We would not have been able to pursue those cases but for the whistleblower filing the case and tipping us off, Brooker says. Cases involving hospice care and pharmaceutical off-labelmarketing-promoting drugs for uses unapproved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration-are strong examples of this trend, she says. Initial allegations of off-label marketing encouraged other whistleblowers to come forward, which ...

The accusations of voter fraud flying around the Nevada Senate race are little more than a setup for Republicans to question the elections outcome if Republican challenger Sharron Angle loses, says a leading Nevada political reporter.. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is in a tight race against Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle going into the mid-term vote next week, with the latest poll showing Angle four points ahead of Reid, and a running average showing less than two percentage points separating them. With the outcome so uncertain, both sides have grown sensitive about the potential for voting irregularities.. But John Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun told Fox News Americas Newsroom Thursday that the allegations coming from the Angle campaign are baseless.. All they have are these wisps of information from voters complaining about various things, which happens every year, Ralston said. But theyre making a pre-emptive strike here, the Republicans are, just in case Sharron Angle loses, so ...
Eleven North Americans were arrested in the United States and Costa Rica Tuesday suspected of running an international operation to cheat gullible, mostly elderly, U.S. citizens out of their cash by telling them they won huge sums of money, but that they must first send 1% of that amount to Costa Rica.. In raids on 17 houses, some of which operated clandestine call centers, Costa Rican and U.S. police seized $20 million as well as computers, bank statements and other documents they will use to investigate the case, explained Costa Ricas Chief Prosecutor Francisco DallAnese at a press conference Tuesday.. The six people arrested in Costa Rica face deportation and have been identified by the last names Pileggi, Atilio, Mangarella, Kalchstein, Coyle and Kankrini, according to Judicial Branch communications director Fabián Barrantes.. Police suspect that people in both countries successfully ran a ring of fraud that has been under investigation by U.S. authorities since 2003. The operation ...

Many genetic counselors recommend that individuals secure desired insurance policies, such as life insurance, prior to undergoing predictive genetic testing. It has been argued, however, that this practice is tantamount to fraud and that failure to disclose genetic test results, or conspiring to secure a policy before testing, opens an individual up to legal recourse. This debate traps affected individuals in a Catch-22. If they apply for life insurance and disclose a genetic test result, they may be denied. If they apply without disclosing the information, they may have committed fraud. The consequences of life insurance fraud are significant: If fraud is found on an application, a life insurer can rescind the policy, in some cases even after the individual has passed away. Such a rescission could leave family members or beneficiaries without the benefits of the life insurance policy payment after the individuals death and place them in in economic difficulty. Although it is clear that lying ...

Forward) -- When billionaire Madoff investor Jeffry Picower was found dead at the bottom of the swimming pool at his oceanfront estate in Palm Beach, Fla., on October 25, he left behind lingering questions about the nature of Bernard Madoffs $65 billion Ponzi scheme. Could Madoff have pulled off the massive fraud on his own, or were others aware of, and even complicit with, the record-breaking scam? While only Madoff and his accountant have faced criminal charges in the affair, few believe that they acted alone. Picower, who allegedly withdrew at least $5 billion in profits from Madoff accounts, was the subject of a civil suit brought by the trustee of the Madoff bankruptcy, claiming that he knew or should have known that Madoffs operations were fraudulent. An autopsy found that Picower drowned following a massive heart attack. The lawsuit against Picower will continue, according to Irving Picard, the Madoff bankruptcy trustee. With Picowers death, however, no one will have the chance to ...

The Charity Commission has released the results of a research exercise in which over 3,000 charities took part. The subject was fraud awareness, resilience and cyber security. For a topic that seems to crop up all too frequently, it is perhaps surprising that the study carried out suggests that many charities are not doing the very basics to protect themselves.. It is not a matter of charities being unaware of the threats, in fact a large percentage of charities (85%) think they are doing all that they can in terms of prevention. The Commission says that here lies the problem: charities are not recognising their own vulnerabilities, and this poses a threat to charity funds and confidence in the sector. As part of this study, the Commission have suggested steps to think about when protecting charity funds:. ...
Well, no. Akerlof and Romer explained that whether or not banks were too-big-to-fail their controlling officers could find it maximized their wealth to loot the bank. As their title makes clear, their analysis of the CEOs incentive to loot the bank he controlled was not based on any assumption that the bank would not fail and be placed in receivership. Akerlof and Romer stressed that the banks failure was not a failure of the controlling officers fraud scheme. The controlling officers became wealthy by following the accounting fraud recipe that caused the catastrophic losses that caused the bank to fail.. Shleifer also failed to understand the portions of the fraud literature that he read. The average tenure of a CFO is roughly three years, but CFOs who are inclined to be honest rightly fear that if WaMu reports record earnings by following the accounting fraud recipe (and the CFO and CEO receive massive bonuses) while their banks report only modest earnings that do not trigger the CEOs ...
Michael J. Fox Foundation: Parkinsons research fraud? By Don Harkins Last spring actor Michael J. Fox, a victim of Parkinsons disease, announced that he was quitting acting and was going to dedicate his efforts and energies to finding a cure for the degenerative disease. Since that time, The Idaho Observer has tried repeatedly to supply the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) with medical proof that there is hope for Parkinsons victims. We have contacted MJFF offices in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Santa Monica, California and New York City via telephone, FAX and email. Unless a person pledges to endorse a check to MJFF that will be turned over to pharmaceutical company researchers, so far it would appear that the MJFF has no interest in curing Parkinsons disease. Suspicions that Foxs name is being used to advance a phony crusade against Parkinsons increased once the former actors ties to Pepsi products were understood. According to Betty Martini, one of the worlds leading authorities on ...

Three lawyers and two brokers were arrested for a $10 million mortgage fraud scheme in Brooklyn and Queens that allegedly duped a former Lehman Brothers subsidiary and other property lenders. In the alleged scheme, lawyers Akin Ayorinde, Anthony Onua and Umana Oton, with the help of brokers Jose Vasquez and Moises Vazquez, are accused of using straw buyers to purchase properties in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn and Elmont, Queens. Then they would then allegedly turnaround and sell the properties to dummy buyers at inflated prices. Another co-defendant, Hervin Henry, allegedly tricked the lenders by confirming income and employment of phantom employees who applied for the mortgages. [New York Post]
