Criminals and bad actors are targeting coronavirus response funds, seizing on every opportunity they can in this time of crisis to steal or intentionally misuse this money, including preying on students; schools; and Federal, State, and local government agencies. The Office of Inspector General (OIG), through its Special Investigations Unit, is working to identify, prevent, and stop the criminals and bad actors who seek to steal or misuse these funds. The OIG Special Investigations Unit is composed of professional criminal investigators with decades of experience in conducting education-related investigations and stopping education-focused fraud schemes involving Federal education programs. Many of those investigations started with a call to the OIG by a person who suspected fraud. That is how we were able to stop it. That is why we need your help to identify potential coronavirus fraud and report it to the OIG.
