Fraud Bulletin/Information Digest

Case examples of fraud against the government.

The OIG Fraud Bulletin provides NRC employees with case examples from across the OIG community on the extent to which unscrupulous individuals and contractors will go to perpetrate fraud against the government. The majority of the case examples show that the fraud schemes were detected by conscientious government employees who displayed a questioning attitude and were willing to look behind the paper.

The Fraud Bulletin also offers helpful suggestions to the public to protect themselves from identity theft and other instances of fraud that can be perpetrated against them.

The Fraud Bulletin was renamed Information Digest effective with the August 2003 edition.
