What To Know About PPP Fraud

The PPP is a loan program backed by the federal government that allowed employers to pay their staff and cover certain other costs during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Using the funds from a PPP loan to pay for anything other than the federally approved expenses is a form of fraud. The Small Business Administration is even auditing any business that received a loan of $2 million or more. Even if a well-intentioned individual did not realize that they misused funds, they could face federal charges and serious criminal penalties, including jail time.
