Former FBI Director Louis Freeh’s firm has launched a private investigation on behalf of companies suing Pilot Flying J to determine how much the diesel fuel retailer may have bilked customers out of rebates, the Associated Press reports.

The plaintiffs hired Freeh after FBI agents raided Pilot’s headquarters in Knoxville, Tenn. in search of information about the alleged scam.

The company’s CEO, Jimmy Haslam, also owns the Cleveland Browns.

Feds are investigating allegations that the company boosted profits by withholding rebates to diesel customers, the AP wrote.
