BP launches anti-fraud hotline for false Macondo claims


NEW ORLEANS –  BP has set up a hotline for people to report alleged fraud involving claims arising from the company' s massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
Monday' s launch of the hotline comes a week after a federal appeals court heard BP' s argument that it has been forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in settlement money to businesses with inflated or fictitious claims.
 
Earlier this month, a judge appointed former FBI Director Louis Freeh to investigate alleged misconduct by a lawyer who helped administer BP' s multibillion-dollar settlement with Gulf Coast residents and businesses.
 
BP said calls to the hotline can be anonymous and could entitle a caller to a reward if a tip leads to an indictment, recovery of money or denial of a claim.
