It was found the companies increased the weights of shipments and storage of servicemember’s and federal employee’s household goods and then submitted claims for payment to the government for the inflated weights. The case was handled by Assistant United States Attorneys Fran Trapp, Jennifer Aldrich and Stan Ragsdale.
“Fraud on the government is high priority in this office. Monies paid to Covan for inflated weights could have been used for the benefit of our servicemembers. Our aggressive pursuit of this case is further proof of our commitment to combat fraudulent claims made against the Federal Government.”- Bill Nettles
