CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) –
FOX19 has uncovered documents confirming a federal investigation into how T&T Enterprises, a trucking company based in West Chester, was able to land lucrative contracts to haul mail and equipment for the U.S. Postal Service.
A whistleblower "alleged that (T&T) has been fraudulently obtaining" the contracts "with the help of a Postal contracting employee," according to a U.S. Dept. of Labor investigator’s report obtained by FOX19.
Former T&T drivers tell us that T&T hired the postal employee’s two daughters to work at the company’s West Chester headquarters doing office work.
And they say it was that postal contracting employee who helped owner Eric Trautman, Sr., obtain contracts in the beginning, though she no longer works for the Postal Service.
