The World Bank Group has set up a telephone hotline to provide a central point for reporting allegations of fraud and corruption. The hotline may be used to report fraudulent or corrupt practices within the Bank Group or Bank-financed contracts.

The hotline will be available for use by both Bank Group staff and the public. The telephone number in the United States and Canada is 1-800-831-0463. Those outside North America can be transferred via an AT&T operator
