Detecting Fraud in Small Business Administration Lending Programs.
You may report fraud, waste, mismanagement, or misconduct involving SBA programs or employees either online or by calling the OIG Hotline toll-free at (800) 767-0385.
You may choose to make an anonymous complaint. Please bear in mind, however, that receiving complaints anonymously often hinders our ability to investigate the complaint fully as we are generally unable to contact you with requests for clarification and follow-up information. Also, we will not be able to inform you about the results of our review.
You may also request that your identity remain confidential. In this case, the OIG will not release your name without your prior consent unless we determine that such disclosure is absolutely unavoidable during the course of an investigation or audit.
If you are having a problem with a product or service purchased from a business or merchant, you should contact your state or local government's consumer affairs department, state attorney general's office, or local Better Business Bureau.
If you have a question regarding an SBA loan or any SBA program, please contact your local SBA District Office or the SBA Answer Desk at 1-800-U-ASK-SBA (1-800-827-5722) or email@example.com.
