Haley announces waste and fraud tipline

April 5, 2011 

A new hotline for state workers to report waste, fraud and abuse is up and running, Gov. Nikki Haley said Tuesday.

Calls to the hotline will be referred to George Schroeder, who Haley recently named to the newly-created post of state inspector general.

Schroeder has been charged with rooting out waste among the cabinet agencies that report directly to the governor.

"We have constituents who see waste, and they want to tell someone about it," said Gov. Haley. "We have state employees who see fraud and abuse, and they want to tell someone about it."

State employees can call 1-855-SC-FRAUD to anonymously leave a tip.
