What happens when I report fraud to the Inspector General's Hotline?


If the Hotline determines that your complaint of fraud and abuse merits further scrutiny, it will refer the complaint to appropriate field agency for review and development. That agency will then decide how to proceed with the complaint.

We cannot provide information regarding what action we have taken on any allegation reported to our office. Federal regulations prohibit the disclosure of information contained in law enforcement records even to the individual making the allegation. The complaint resolution process usually takes at least six months.
