Hypothetically speaking, you would have to have indisputable proof of fraudulent billing. Assuming I had that, I would approach the broker/IMO with my evidence and simply ask questions. Play dumb if you want.



"Mr. Broker, I'm not sure I understand this: Right here, we can clearly see you've billed Blue Cross for marketing that never happened. Why would a successful guy like you bill insurance carriers for work that was never performed? I wonder how the insurance companies would feel about this? I wonder if this is illegal/unethical/immoral? What should I do here?"



Some people are going to call this type of approach confrontational. Good God, we'd hate to hurt anyone's feelings - especially if they're ripping off insurance companies.



The chances of you finding a regulatory agency that'll take an interest in this sort of thing are slim at the very best. You might call he insurance company and see who'll chat with you about it.



It certainly seems as though your intentions are good and I applaud that. Good luck.

Thanks for the input INvestigator,I appreciate it. So hypothetically if i had what I believe to be copies of invoices provided to the broker, who then submitted them to the Ins Companies, its your opinion the CA DOI investigators wouldnt pursue this? The amount of invoicing is quite substantial, deep into the six figures. I assume one would contact the SIU reps at the Companies affected?

Again, hypothetically speaking:



I doubt CDOI's investigators would give you anything more than a letter explaining why they can't/won't help.

I think that would be a great idea.

Hypothetically of course, if the indisputable documents were in hand and DOI had been contacted and commented that they wanted the whistleblower to come in and meet for an interview would you have any advice on how one would proceed with them? Would a Qui Tam suit be the logical course of action? Appreciate your comments Investigator.

If the DOI had been notified and asked the person holding the indisputable documents to come in for an interview, I think they should do exactly that. The False Claims Act would be a great option if there are substantial damages. Good idea. If you need a Qui Tam law firm, let me know.

I've been informed that I cannot refer law firms in this forum. Either send me an email, give me a call or Google Qui Tam and see what comes up.

Hacked emails show extent of foreign fed government donations to Clinton Foundation



A newly disclosed internal email about a potential $1million gift from the actual of Qatar to the Clinton Foundation is shedding light on how the charity dealt with donations from foreign governments during Hillary Clinton's time as secretary of state.



An ethics agreement with the national government placed certain limits on such contributions during her tenure. Diplomat by supporting the cornerstone that her husband started.



But that agreement did not stop donations from foreign governing bodies entirely. many advantages from governments that had given before Clinton took office were allowed, Provided those donations did not represent sturdy increases over past giving. Ally to, every now and then, sophisticated relations with the American government.



[Foreign governing bodies gave millions to foundation while Clinton was at State Dept.]



Seven region, specifically three Persian Gulf states, Donated sums of money to the Clinton Foundation when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. (Bastien Inzaurralde/The oregon Post)



in an email sent to Clinton Foundation officials, The ambassador to Qatar requested a ending up in former president Bill Clinton in 2012, Apparently so that he could present a $1million check that Qatar had promised honoring Clinton's birthday in 2011.

The email was first through Reuters. cleverness of orchestrating recent cyberhacks, periodically doctor or fake documents.



It is not clear whether Bill Clinton ever met with the ambassador or whether the state presented the check. But foundation officials have disclosed that Qatar donated to the Clinton Foundation in 2012 as part of a few gifts that have so far totaled between $1million and $5million.



The Clinton Foundation previously indicated that Qatar was one of seven foreign governments that made donations to the global philanthropy while Clinton was secretary of state. But the type of Qatar's giving during that time has not been previously known.



Craig Minassian, a basis spokesman, these, "due to 2002, Qatar has been among our record numbers of donors who have supported the Clinton Foundation's overall humanitarian work including making life saving HIV/AIDS treatment available to millions of people in more than 70 countries, Combating childhood obesity here in the world and working to empower girls and women around the world,



Although Qatar has been criticized for encroachment of human rights, It has also sought credibility in the west through philanthropy.

The moment provided a bit of Clinton blessed legitimacy for the Qataris at a time when allegations were swirling that they had won the bid to host the World Cup through bribery. The Qataris consistently denied those allegations.



[As FIFA suggestions swirled, Clintons gave Qatar a stage and authenticity]



The 2008 ethics agreement had been hashed out by top aides for the president and Clinton Foundation officials. The agreement provided an avenue for the inspiration to accept donations from foreign governments that had never given before or were increasing the size of their donations. Those donations were to be submitted to the State Department for vetting. But State Department officials have said doing this was never used.



A foundation official indicated that Qatar's 2012 gift did not represent an increase in the nation's giving that required State Department approval.



The Clinton Foundation has acknowledged that it accepted one gift that should have been vetted and licensed by the State Department $500,000 from Algeria to assist Haiti after the distressing earthquake in 2010.



the cornerstone has said it will cease accepting donations from foreign governments or individuals and from corporations if Hillary Clinton is elected president. But your email, Hacked from the account of the Clinton marketing campaign's chairman, david Podesta, Show internal anxiety for months about whether ties to the building blocks could be politically problematic for the Democratic presidential nominee.



One message from 2014, Six months before the formal launch of Clinton's presidential campaign, Showed that her soon to be named campaign manager was already grappling with how to deal with Clinton's ties to the business.



"One question that is specific to the muse is whether it will still have and/or use her name next year, Robby Mook wrote to Clinton's longtime aide Cheryl Mills, Who also served as an adviser to the nonprofit charities. "Do do you know what their plan is for that,
