More details about financial fraud
The Department of Justice whistleblower reward program needs you to step forward if you have inside information to prove a company is cheating under TARP, Bailout programs, or any other misuse of federal government funds.
The government poured nearly $3 trillion into TARP and a dozen other new Bailout Programs. It is estimated that between 10 percent and 30 percent of these funds are lost to TARP fraud and Bailout Program fraud. That means TARP fraud and bailout fraud could exceed $500 billion.
Below are examples of Financial Fraud
- Using collateral already in default or that is from a fraudulent loan
- Lying about or overstating the value of property or dept rating
Examples of Balance Sheet Fraud under TARP or Bailout Programs
- Claiming the balance sheet is only levered 30 to 1 when it is not
- Hiding assets off-shore or overseas

- Using overseas “shell” banks
- Hiding liabilities through the use of Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs)
