BLOOMFIELD HILLS (WXYZ) — The Bloomfield Hills man accused of scamming millions of dollars in federal contract money is William Kozerski.
Federal investigators said the 62-year-old, now charged with wire fraud, claimed a construction company, CA Services, was owned by a veteran who had been disabled in service to the United States of America.

But, according to investigators, that was a lie.

"This special advantage that they get is in recognition of their service to the country, which to have someone take advantage of that, for financial gain, is reprehensible," said Gavin McClaren of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Inspector General - Criminal Investigations Division.
According to court documents, Kozerski "fraudulently claimed CA Services met the requirements of the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program in order to obtain approximately $11.8 million in contracts for work at VA Medical Centers in Cleveland, Detroit and Ann Arbor."
