Well, not exactly. But the Government Accountability Office has set up a hotline to track stimulus fraud, and the agency is asking everyone — feds, contractors and private citizens — to report waste and abuse.

GAO is one of the agencies tasked with overseeing billions of dollars in stimulus spending, which would be a difficult task even if the agency had no other responsibilities.

“The public can help to identify improper activities or weaknesses in programs that warrant scrutiny,” said Gene Dodaro, the acting comptroller general.

Here’s the contact information for FraudNet, GAO’s new hotline:

By phone: 1-800-424-5454

By fax: 202-512-3086

By e-mail: fraudnet@gao.gov
