“Zulu Queen” Indicted for Medicare Fraud

Both my law enforcement and legal career started in New Orleans. The city was rife with corruption back then and has not improved much over the last 30 years. It’s a shame; the people who live and work there are some of the nicest and hard working people I have met. Still, there is a [...]

HSBC – Menace or Monster?

For years, Bank of America was our number one source for stories about bank fraud, bad corporate behavior and greed. Like a pirate nation ruled by corrupt warlords, the population (bank employees) are basically wonderful people but much of the bank’s leadership is rotten to the core. Lately, however, we think HSBC may have pushed [...]

Shocking Lawyer Behavior in Whistleblower Case

Being a whistleblower isn’t easy. Of course many make huge sums of money and are successful in stamping out fraud. Unfortunately along their journey some face retaliation, poverty and the inability to discuss their case. (False Claims Act cases are “sealed” by the court during investigation.) Although the public reads about the successful cases, not [...]

Sen. Paul Rand Re-Introduces FATCA Repeal

Another term of Congress and U.S. Senator Paul Rand (R – Kentucky) has again introduced legislation to repeal FATCA. Short for the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, FATCA seeks to combat offshore tax evasion by requiring banks to report account holders with offshore accounts.
