Washington, DC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/14/2014 -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Dumping” occurs when companies export products at prices lower than what they normally charge in their own country. Antidumping duties are in place to protect US businesses from this unfair practice. Companies often circumvent these duties by transshipping. Transshipping occurs when a company ships products from one country, such as China, to a different country for repackaging, to then claim that country is the country of origin to avoid the antidumping duties. There can be significant rewards for well documented proof of transshipping, as we would like to explain with one call to 866-714-6466." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The government aggressively pursues any company that participates in transshipping. Recently, an Ohio-based company, Basco Manufacturing, Inc., agreed to pay $1.1 million to settle claims it violated the False Claims Act by allegedly making false claims to customs to avoid paying antidumping duties on products imported from China. According to the suit, the company allegedly participated in transshipping by claiming the products were from Malaysia by shipping them from China to Malaysia for repackaging.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We would like insiders with proof a company is engaging in transshipping to contact us, not only because it is the right thing to do, but because the reward potential is huge. If you have well-documented proof of this type of wrongdoing in excess of $1 million, we will help you package your information and get you to the best whistleblower attorneys in the country.” Potential insiders can contact the group at 877-714-6466 or online via their website: http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:
- Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake.”
- Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.
- Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information.”
- The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state and industry.
Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
