Government fraud typically involves making false statements, making
false claims, mail fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy to defraud the government.
These types of fraud often take place in connection with federal government
contracting, federal and/or federally-funded entitlement programs (such as
public housing), agricultural programs, defense procurement fraud, educational
programs, and corporate fraud.
As they relate to federal government contracting, investigations often involve bribery in contracts or procurement, collusion among contractors, false or double billing, false certification of the quality of parts or of test results, and substitution of bogus or otherwise inferior parts.
Statutes used to prosecute government fraud are included in 18 U.S.C. § 1001 (false statements), 18 U.S.C. § 287 (false claims), 18 U.S.C. § 371 (conspiracy to defraud the government), 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, and 18 U.S.C. 1341, 1343 (wire fraud).
Private citizens may file lawsuits against a person or company who is believed to have violated the law in the performance of a contract with the government or in violation of a government regulation. These actions are called qui tam lawsuits, and the private citizens who file them are called whistleblowers. Whistleblowers receive a percentage of the recovery against the defendant. If the violations are significant, the federal government may get involved in the lawsuit to ensure a proper and thorough investigation, to be involved in any negotiations, and to aid in the success of the case.
If you or someone you know is under investigation in a government fraud case, it is critical that an experienced criminal defense or qui tam attorney is consulted.
