Potential Perils of the Paycheck Protection Program: A Federal Focus on Fraud
Created on June 04, 2021
Millions of businesses have survived the pandemic by taking advantage of the forgivable loans in the Paycheck Protection Program. But from the outset, the Justice Department has expressed concern about the opportunity for fraudsters to take advantage of the government's unprecedented largesse. While early cases focused on phantom employees and misuse of PPP funds, the scrutiny has broadened to include issues of eligibility and possible fraud in seeking loan forgiveness.
