Getting legal help

Report suspected fraud or wrongdoing

If you suspect fraud or wrongdoing, tell us. Our ethics hotline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You do not have to give us your name. All reports are handled by an independent company to ensure anonymity and confidentiality. Your call will not be recorded or traced, and online reports will be sent securely to LAO's Complaints department for further action.
