How To Blow the Whistle, Get Heard, Get Paid,
and Live To Tell the Tale

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” —J.K. Rowling

Do you know that something is not right at your workplace—like tax fraud, securities fraud, healthcare or government fraud? Perhaps you’ve asked your co-workers or supervisors about it and were shocked or disappointed when they told you to ignore it. Maybe you have tried to change it. You might even feel that you are a part of it … and you can’t stop thinking about it.

Taking a stand. Telling the truth. Taking on wrongdoers. Doing the right thing—and reaping the financial rewards. Being the whistleblower sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But it hardly ever feels that way. The process is hard and long. You will be accused of lying or told you are wrong. You will face retaliation from colleagues and friends.

When you feel that there is absolutely no other way to solve the problem—that is the time to blow the whistle.

whistleblower exposes security flaw

Whistleblower James Glenn Exposes Serious Security Flaw in Cisco Video Surveillance and Management Software

Congratulations to whistleblower James Glenn (my former client) who helped expose a serious security flaw with Cisco’s video surveillance and management software.  Kudos to my old colleagues at Constantine Cannon, Phillips & Cohen and Personius Melber as well. James blows the whistle James is a brilliant, modest, honest and thoughtful guy who discovered the problem with Cisco’s software, reported it to the company, tried to get them to (and help them to) take action and wound up fired (total coincidence, I’m sure…). He was not deterred, though.  He reported the problem to the FBI, and then to the Department... Read More.

Fraudulent Healthcare Kickbacks Taint Medicine Across the Globe

I recently made a video, see this blog post, describing the problem of kickbacks in the healthcare industry here in the United States.  The short version: a kickback is a bribe, paid to someone who is supposed to advise you on what products or services to buy.  If that advisor, or “agent,” steers you to buy something not because it is the best, but instead because they get a financial benefit from the seller, this is a kickback. These things happen all the time in business and politics, which is troubling enough, but is also, unfortunately, all too common... Read More.

Fraud Risks with Genetic Testing

The Office of Inspector General for the United States Department of Health and Human Services has issued a fraud alert about genetic testing scams, in which companies send patients a free genetic testing kit as a way of stealing their identity information, which is then used to bill fraudulent services. This is a new twist on two tried-and-true scams.  The first scam involves fraudulent claims for durable medical equipment, such as wheelchairs and expensive braces.  You may have been getting calls from fraudulent telemarketers telling you that your insurance company has approved you for an expensive brace for your...
