In common law, a writ of qui tam is a writ whereby a private individual who assists a prosecution can receive all or part of any penalty imposed. Its name is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur, meaning “[he] who sues in this matter for the king as well as for himself.”
Qui Tam is poison for the big rats. Maybe your boss is a big rat who for years has been defrauding the Government. Maybe its time that you talked to an attorney who specializes in the False Claims Act. The attorney will tell you how to collect evidence that will prove the claim of fraud. There is no cost to you. The Government wants to pay you big bucks to stop fraud. Maybe it is time to purchase a USB flash drive on Amazon and to start thinking about an early retirement. Talk to an attorney specializing in the False Claims Act TODAY.
The False Claims Act (31 U.S.C. §§ 3729–3733, also called the “Lincoln Law”) is an American federal law that imposes liability on persons and companies (typically federal contractors) who defraud governmental programs. It is the federal Government’s primary litigation tool in combating fraud against the Government.
