Early Signs of an Investigation

Typically, an FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) or OIG (Office of Inspector General) investigation doesn’t start with a dramatic knock on the door. There are subtler signs you might notice:

  • Unusual Requests for Information: If you’re in the healthcare or financial sector, and there’s a sudden, intense interest in your documentation or business practices, that’s a red flag.

  • Interviews and Subpoenas: The FBI or OIG might interview your colleagues or request records through subpoenas. Your partners, vendors, or other parties could get interviewed, which can be embarrassing at best but spell much more serious trouble to come.

  • Bank and Credit Notices: An investigation can trigger alerts from your financial institutions about unusual account inquiries. For instance, you may get a notice from your bank that your account has been frozen or closed, or that copies of your bank statements have been subpoenaed.

What to Do When Federal Agents Come Knocking

Imagine you’re enjoying your morning coffee when federal agents arrive unannounced. Here’s the best way to handle the situation:

  1. Stay Calm: Agents bank on shock value to catch you off guard. Take a deep breath.

  2. Understand Your Rights, and Use Them: You have the right to remain silent, and you also have the right to an attorney.

  3. Avoid Immediate Discussions: It’s natural to want to clear things up, but it’s wise not to engage in discussions without legal counsel.

  4. Contact Stanley L. Friedman: As a former federal prosecutor, Mr. Friedman understands the playbook the agents are using.
