Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Generally, when they first contact you to let you know they are investigating you, you would get an opportunity to speak to an investigator and set up a payment plan. Whether that will prevent you from being prosecuted, however, is another matter. That would depend on the facts and circumstances and whether they think you deliberately committed a fraud. This is why if you know you are being investigated it is best to have a lawyer with you when you speak to them.
