Government fraud has a tremendous cost. When individuals or companies take advantage of the government, taxpayers are forced to foot the bill. One way to stop this abuse is to take legal action against those who are committing fraud.
The False Claims Act was enacted by Congress to encourage private citizens to file cases in the name of the United States to recover damages when false and fraudulent claims are submitted to the government.
This type of action is called a “whistleblower” or qui tam (pronounced key tam) lawsuit. In these cases, private citizens who report the fraud may be able to share in the recovery of money damages and penalties.
