State launches online site to report fraud

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The state has launched a secure website that allows the public to anonymously report suspected cases of fraud, waste and abuse of public funds in Tennessee.

Beginning Wednesday, online users may electronically alert the state comptroller's office about suspected government misuse of public funds by visiting: http://www.comptroller.tn.gov/shared/safwa.asp

A toll-free telephone hotline has been available since 1983 for reporting fraud, waste and abuse of government funds and property. During that time, the state said the hotline has received more than 17,000 calls.

"In this day and age, it makes sense to give people the option to send us fraud reports online," State Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said. "This is another tool to help ensure that public money is being spent properly in Tennessee. I encourage people to take advantage of this new service if they have reason to suspect fraud, waste or abuse has occurred."
