Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Whistleblowers

Posted on February 11, 2021

The effort to rebuild Puerto Rico after the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria continues every day. Tremendous amounts of money and resources from the federal government are pouring in, but is that money and resources being used properly? 

Unfortunately, we have seen many examples of waste, incompetence, and even stealing in the corporations and government agencies responsible for leading the recovery effort. This means that important infrastructure is not being rebuilt, people’s homes are not being rebuilt, and everyday life cannot return to normal. 

How much faster could Puerto Rico recover if the money started flowing to the right place?

But there’s something you can do to help stop this. And when you do, you’ll also potentially receive a big financial reward. 

Become a Whistleblower

Federal “Qui Tam” law under the “False Claims Act” provides a framework for legal protection and payment for those who report fraud on the part of federal contractors. “Whistleblowers” who report fraud that they have witnessed or heard of can receive a payment that equals a percentage of the money they are saving the federal government by uncovering this fraud. This percentage can be as high as 15 to 25 percent. 

The law also helps protect the legal rights of those who come forward and keeps them safe from retaliation. “Qui Tam” lawsuits are filed under seal, meaning that no one but the person coming forward, their lawyer, and the federal government agencies responsible for investigating will know about it. 

You Can Make an Impact on the Future of Puerto Rico

Your city, your neighborhood, your family. Everyone is affected when the money that’s supposed to go to repairing power lines, fixing roads, and delivering food and water goes into the pockets of criminals instead. 

The government in Washington D.C. and San Juan thinks they’re helping. They think that they’re sending enough money, supplies, and equipment to help the whole of Puerto Rico recover. But what they don’t know is that too many of those things are just not getting to where they’re supposed to go.

How much faster could Puerto Rico recover if the money started flowing to the right place? If you have seen or heard of any fraud of federal money taking place, you have the power to get that fraud investigated and stopped. And when you do, you’ll have the chance to receive a very large financial reward.
