Our natural resources, energy resources, and wildlife are subject to numerous laws and government programs that can give rise to fraudulent activity. Whistleblowers can be eligible for financial rewards in a number of different ways, including when they report:
Misrepresentations about the amount of oil, gas, or other natural resources extracted from public lands in order to fraudulently underpay royalties to the government.
False representations made to avoid paying environmental fines.
Overcharges to the government and other contract fraud on environmental cleanup projects
False representations of compliance by government contractors who failed to adhere to material environmental regulations or contract requirements.
