On August 12, 2020, a former DOJ contractor who had previously been awarded contracts with the FBI and BOP was arrested following an Indictment charging him with three counts of wire fraud, one count of false claims, one count of aggravated identity theft, one count of impersonating an officer of the United States, one count of theft of government property, and one count of forging documents. Kentey Ramone Fielder was charged in the Eastern District of Washington. According to the Indictment, from on or about September 24, 2014, through on or about February 14, 2017, Fielder schemed to defraud multiple government agencies by continuing to seek government contracts after being debarred, by impersonating government contracting officers, fraudulently inducing another company to complete work on a purported contract, and forging government documents. Fielder and his known business entities were previously suspended from doing business with the government on May 9, 2019. The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Fraud Detection Office, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, and multiple other federal department’s Offices of the Inspector General.
