Whistleblower as a Public Service
Washington DC Qui Tam Attorneys
Becoming a whistleblower is a courageous act of public service and patriotism.
If you, as a responsible taxpayer, become aware of a scheme to defraud
the government, you not only have a duty to report it, you have significant
incentives as well. The False Claims Act provides:
The United States government contracts with millions of private companies
and individuals, paying them to provide a wide range of goods and services.
In addition to the procurement of goods and services for itself, the government
also subsidizes medical care for Americans with low income, senior citizens,
and veterans through its healthcare programs Medicare, Medicare, and TRICARE.
Besides providing medical care for millions of Americans, the federal
government also spends hundreds of billions of dollars to provide for
the common defense.
The government's resources are limited, and funds must be allocated
carefully to ensure that these important programs can operate effectively.
Already, Congress is considering major cuts in government programs to
reduce spending and cut the fiscal deficit. Unfortunately, there are plenty
of unscrupulous companies and individuals who steal scarce taxpayer dollars
away from important programs through fraud and false claims.
With so many vendors and corporations receiving payment through government
contracts, it may not be surprising that some commit outright fraud while
many more manipulate paperwork and billing codes to increase their profits.
False claims make government programs seem much more expensive, bloating
defense and healthcare budgets with unnecessary, fraudulent spending.
With our current fiscal crisis, the government can ill afford to be victimized
by fraud and abuse.
The Government Needs Your Help to Stop Fraud
Without the help of citizens such as yourself, it would be impossible for
the federal government to investigate, prosecute, and punish any significant
fraction of the false claims made each year. Without the time and resources
to uncover these often subtle, hidden schemes, the government depends on
whistleblowers and their
qui tam attorneys to report fraud and abuse. False claims against the government
cost taxpayers billions of dollars, and with your help, the government
can get that money back on behalf of all of us.
