Ask DHS - Inspector General
What if the situation I want to report isn’t really fraud?
If you believe the situation you want to report might be fraud, we want you to report it. Many fraud reports are made with the best intentions, but upon review, the circumstances do not turn out to be fraud. That happens because program rules can be complex. That’s why fraud reports are reviewed by policy experts before decisions are made to assign them for criminal investigation. Only those reports that actually provide the investigators reasonable suspicion of fraud are assigned to OIG Fraud Units.
