Long-Term Implications of Fraudulent Activities Against the Government
Fraud against the government can lead to serious implications, such as:
- Threaten important government programs such as national security, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security by stealing from these programs’ limited budgets
- Cost taxpayers billions of dollars each year
- Create a loss of confidence in the government’s ability to run efficiently without disruption from dishonest and untrustworthy contractors
Through the False Claims Act, there is a process of reporting fraud that must be rigorously followed. Reporting government fraud is a complicated matter.
