Investigations Unit of the Legal Services Division
Report Government Fraud
State Comptroller DiNapoli is working to find and fight fraud at every level of State and local government. The public’s help is needed in this fight. New Yorkers can report allegations of fraud, corruption or abuse of taxpayer money by calling a toll-free hotline at 1-888-OSC-4555 (1-888-672-4555).
The hotline is staffed Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by experienced investigators from the Investigations Unit of the Legal Services Division of the Office of the State Comptroller. New Yorkers may also file an online complaint, print a complaint form or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once a complaint is received, the Investigations Unit may:
- Conduct a preliminary investigation;
- Open a full investigation;
- Refer the complaint to the proper agency or authority; or
- Close the case.
