In the past several months, a slew of charges and criminal investigations have been announced for fraud related to COVID-19 relief funds. Most recently, in response to a ruling by a federal judge in Washington, the Small Business Administration was ordered to release records of the recipients of pandemic relief grants and loans. As a result, many more businesses and individuals are being investigated and prosecuted for allegedly submitting fraudulent loan applications or misusing relief funds.
Fraud is a serious matter. The government also makes mistakes, and many who are questioned about Covid relief funds are likely to be innocent. If you are contacted by an investigator or government official regarding Covid relief funds, contact an attorney at Galarnyk & Associates, Ltd. before making any statements.
We hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
