The Civil False Claims Act allow private citizens to sue along with
the United States, in fraud actions against companies who have defrauded
the Federal government. The private citizen who reports the fraud is entitled
to a substantial reward, often in the millions of dollars.
Types of fraud situations that may trigger the Act:
Health care fraud and overbilling.
Contract bidding, where a potential recipient of a bid offers kickbacks
to insure that the bid is accepted.
Mischarge claims in which the government is charged for undelivered goods
or overcharged for the actual goods delivered.
False negotiation claims where a party in negotiation with the United States
uses false statements or illegal actions throughout the process. Substandard
product and service claims where government suppliers provide inferior
substitutes in place of the goods or services that were contracted for.
