Stimulus Fraud: How Agencies Investigate It and What Happens When They Find It

by Terence M. Grugan, David L. Axelrod, and Emilia McKee Vassallo
May 26, 2020
In Part I of our series, we analyzed the spending features of the COVID-19 stimulus packages and introduced the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) as the closest historical analogue to them. In Part II, we discussed TARP in greater detail and highlighted the various ways fraudsters exploited it. Here we dive into how federal agencies coordinated to investigate TARP fraud and discuss representative cases to understand what those fraud investigations related to the COVID-19 stimulus programs.
