We were retained to assist attorneys with the U.S. Department of Justice in a multi-agency corruption probe involving possible E-rate fraud. The allegations included a wide-ranging fraudulent billing scheme involving several religious schools and consultants. The scheme was allegedly designed to obtain fraudulent reimbursements from the federal E-rate subsidy program, which subsidizes the acquisition of technology infrastructure for low-income communities.
Our work consisted of conducting a detailed review of the books and records of the schools, day care centers, vendors, consultants, and other related entities and individuals for a five-year period. In addition, we reviewed several terabytes of phone records, emails, and other documents related to the matter.
