Hundreds of millions of dollars of federal funds have flowed to individual all across the US in an attempt to help individuals displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, there have been a number of contractors and other individuals who defrauded the various government programs in order to enrich themselves at the expense of those who are in need of help.

Recently, a Las Vegas man was indicted today by the Federal Grand Jury for making a false claim to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to obtain federal disaster assistance benefits designated for Hurricane Katrina evacuees. The individual Michael Hawk, age 44, of Las Vegas, is charged with one count of Presenting False, Fictitious, and Fraudulent Claims to a Government Agency, a felony offense. According to the Indictment, on November 18, 2005, HAWK allegedly made and presented to FEMA a claim for funds for individuals displaced by Hurricane Katrina, claiming home damage and essential need for food, clothing and shelter, knowing that the claim was false, fictitious and fraudulent, in that he was not an individual displaced by Hurricane Katrina, nor had he been a resident of or resided in Louisiana at the time Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005.

There have numerous stories about contractors who have overcharged the government for construction services, housing, equipment, repairs and various other services.
