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.
