Ohio auditor's app allows tipsters to report fraud

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Want to report a case of suspected fraud in Ohio? The state auditor has an app for that.

Auditor Dave Yost says his "Ohio Stops Fraud" app lets public workers and others report instances of fraud that may be occurring in local government agencies or other public offices.

The iPhone app is free. It lets users submit anonymous tips and track the progress of their complaint. They can attach video or photographic evidence with their tip and answer brief questions about what they have witnessed.

The app also lets tipsters contact an investigator and submit the location of the suspected fraud case with a GPS locator.
