Legislative auditor launches new fraud hotline
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — If you think someone is stealing or wasting public money, the legislative auditor's office has a new hotline to report the suspicions.
The auditor's office announced the launch of the hotline Friday, along with a website and FAX number to report allegations of theft, fraud or waste of public funds. The legislative auditor does accounting reviews of government agencies and tracks state spending.
The hotline number is 1-844-50-FRAUD, and the online reporting site is available at www.ReportFraud.la . The FAX number is 1-844-40-FRAUD.
Information can be provided anonymously. The auditor's office says providing a name and telephone number can be helpful, because it allows follow-up questions.
