Government Case Example #1
For over 3 years, NTi assisted the Department of Defense in their investigation into an elaborate procurement fraud and money laundering scheme. The Department of Defense provided NTi with over 9 million files and call detail records; as well as, 20-25 forensically imaged hard drives to analyze. NTi’s analysis assisted the government to trace the proceeds of the procurement fraud through multiple layers of shell companies and subsequently purchased assets.
Government Case Example #2
NTi was requested to conduct analysis in support of a false claims investigation involving the impersonation of a U.S. Veteran after his death to obtain additional Veteran Owned Small Business contracts. NTi was provided over 500,000 email and call detail records to analyze to confirm the impersonation. NTi’s email and IP analysis and location tracing proved the submission of false claims to the government and the impersonation of a deceased U.S. Veteran.
Government Case Example #3
The Department of Justice requested NTi to conduct analysis in support of their investigation of a $800 million fraud against 3rd party health provider. NTi was provided over 3 million files for analysis to determine if the company fraudulently increased their AWP (average wholesale price) to target Tricare. NTi’s analysis identified evidence confirming the company increased their AWPs by as much as 500% and that they also coached pharmacies on how to charge insurance companies for the compounds.
Government Case Example #4
NTi was requested to analyze 115,000 telephone call records to determine if there was any contact between the target and several other known subjects of interest during key investigative periods. The call records provided were in both electronic and hardcopy format. NTi was able to reformat two-thirds of the call records to an electronically importable format. Approximately 12,000 of the telephone records had to be hand-keyed into our database for analysis due to the poor quality of the documents. NTi’s analysis provided material support to the case for a possible estimated recovery in the form of fines and restitution of $10,000,000 USD. The telephone record analysis was used to determine who the target was in contact with during the time in which foreign-made products were discovered and efforts were made to conceal it.
Government Case Example #5
NTi was requested to process and scan 180 boxes of Search Warrant Documents and identify any items of interest, such as a list of “foreign part numbers” for items sold to the US under government contracts. In total, NTi processed and scanned over 365,000 pages. These boxes contained poor quality images and a wide-array of different sized paper evidence. NTi created a customized plan to accurately and efficiently digitize the data.
