Fraudulent Scheme to Obtain U.S. Army Construction Contracts

SK Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd. pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and paid $68.4 million in criminal fines, restitution, and a False Claims Act settlement in connection with a fraudulent scheme to obtain U.S. Army construction contracts through payments to a Department of Defense contracting official and the submission of false claims to the U.S. government. SK obtained construction work at Camp Humphreys, South Korea, by paying millions of dollars to a fake Korean construction company, which subsequently paid that money to a contracting official with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In order to cover these payments, SK submitted false documents to the Army. SK also admitted that its employees obstructed and attempted to obstruct government investigations.
