If You See Something, Say Something–Fraud Edition

The well-known Department of Homeland Security campaign “If You See Something, Say Something™” seeks to educate the public about the indicators of terrorism and encourage individuals to report suspicious activity to law enforcement. While not as eminently dangerous, the current epidemic of fraud, waste and abuse in our state hurts all taxpayers and is only getting worse. One way to combat fraud is to take inspiration from the DHS campaign and report fraudulent activity when we see it. This list will help you locate the proper state agencies to notify when fraud or abuse are suspected.
