Corporate Whistleblower Center Urges Employees of Contractors

Overbilling the Defense Department to Call Them About Lucrative

Whistleblower Reward Programs

WASHINGTON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower

Center is urging private contractors, or subcontractors of contractors

providing any type of service to the US Defense Department in

Afghanistan, the Middle East, or anywhere in the world to call them at

866-714-6466 if they possess well documented proof the contractor is

overbilling the DOD on services related to training, logistics,

LOGCAP, fuel, food, medical services, or any other type of service.

The reward potential for this type of information can potentially be

enormous. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

In a recent United States Department of Justice press release, the

government alleged that a contractor named MPRI billed for employees

who had not worked because they had been granted leave and were out of

the country. The alleged false billing occurred between March 2005 and

October 2010 in Afghanistan.

Under its contract with the Army, MPRI was required to provide support

to the Army in its efforts to re-design and build from scratch a new

Afghan Defense Sector that would establish an Afghan national security

system suitable for a modern Western military. Among other things,

MPRI was allegedly required to provide support for program and

financial management, development and implementation of core systems

for the Afghan Ministry of Defense and General Staff, intermediate

Commands, sustaining institutions, training in logistics,

acquisitions, and installation management and intelligence.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are an employee of a

private contractor or for a subcontractor providing services to the

Defense Department in Afghanistan, we want you to call us at

866-714-6466 if you have very well documented proof the contractor is

significantly overbilling the DOD. We will carefully explain the

federal whistleblower programs to you, and help get you in contact

with one of the nation's top whistleblower attorneys. The reward

potential for this type of whistleblower information can be incredibly

lucrative." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.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 federal 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 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. 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 wants to emphasize there are

high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New

York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia,

Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia,

Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois,

Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New

Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.

Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of

their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal

government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center

anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at
