Frequently Asked Questions

What are the acts for which someone may be held liable under the False Claims Act Statute?

The False Claims Act Statute, as outlined in U.S. Code § 3729, holds individuals or companies liable for a range of acts related to fraudulent or false claims. These acts include knowingly and intentionally presenting a fraudulent or false claim for approval or payment, using or making a false statement or record as material for a fraudulent or false claim, and conspiring to break any law related to making claims. Other acts include having control, custody, or possession of money or property to be used by the government and knowingly delivering less than all of the property or money, delivering or producing a receipt without knowing for certain that the information included on the receipt is true, and knowingly receiving or purchasing property from a governmental employee or officer or member of the Armed Forces who is not legally authorized to sell that property. Furthermore, knowingly concealing or avoiding an obligation to pay the government, or using or making a false statement or record about the obligation to transmit or pay money or property to the government, also falls under the purview of the False Claims Act Statute.
