Suspected fraud can now be reported online

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennesseans suspecting fraud, waste or abuse of public funds in state government can now report their suspicions using an online form.

The state Comptroller's office has provided a toll-free telephone hotline for reporting suspected fraud, waste and abuse since 1983. During that time, the hotline has received more than 17,000 calls.

Last year, the General Assembly expanded the Advocacy for Honest and Appropriate Government Spending Act to allow online reporting as well.

Comptroller Justin Wilson said in a news release about the new service that it is "another tool to help ensure that public money is being spent properly in Tennessee."

Reports can be made anonymously.
