Qui Tam – Whistleblower Cases
If you have uncovered a Fraud a reward is waiting for you!
Every year unethical business organizations defraud the federal government out of billions of taxpayers’ dollars. According to published reports medical fraud alone has reached near $100 billion dollars. Unscrupulous medical providers who submit false claims to Medicare and Medicaid are only a part of the problem. Fraud is far reaching and involves private contractors and private vendors who do work for or supply products to various government agencies. Fraud has been uncovered in many industries such as, defense, education, environment, health and human services, and energy to name a few.
Yet with the help of people like you — people who have uncovered fraud, who have substantiating evidence, and who want to step forward and bring these corrupt businesses to justice – lawsuits have been filed under the False Claims Act and successfully won against these types of businesses, resulting in recoveries for the government and tax payers, substantial fines for the businesses, and large rewards for those who reported the fraud.
A law entitled the False Claims Act (FCA), also known as the “ Lincoln law” the “Informers Act” or the “qui tam” statute, makes is possible for Whistleblowers to receive a substantial monetary reward up to 30% of the governments recovery, upon successful prosecution of a claim. According to statistics released by the Department of Justice the average Whistleblower’s award is $1 million dollars. Additionally, the False Claims Act affords job protection to those who report the fraud.
