Report Government Fraud


State Comptroller DiNapoli is working to combat fraud at every level of State and local government and by contractors/vendors with the State. The public’s help is needed in this fight. You can report allegations of fraud, corruption or abuse of taxpayer money by calling Comptroller DiNapoli’s toll-free hotline at 1-888-OSC-4555
or (1-888-672-4555)

The hotline is staffed Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by trained staff from Comptroller DiNapoli’s Division of Investigations.

You may also file an online complaint, print a complaint form or send an email to

Once a complaint is received, the Division of Investigations will review your complaint and may:

  • conduct a preliminary investigation;
  • open a full investigation;
  • refer the complaint to the proper agency or authority; or
  • close the case.

Due to the high volume of complaints, it's not always possible to provide an immediate or personal response. We do, however, fully review and appropriately resolve all complaints.

Please review the Comptroller’s privacy policy before submitting a complaint.
