Do You Need a Whistleblower Attorney for Government Contractor Fraud?

What is government contractor fraud?

Government contract fraud is any dishonest scheme by which a contractor (or subcontractor) knowingly induces the Government to pay money that it should not have paid under a contract for goods and services, e.g., where the contractor knew the goods or services were not provided or were substandard or failed to meet other significant contract requirements, or where the contractor lied in order to get the contract.

The original False Claims Act, including its qui tam provisions, was passed in 1863 to combat cheating in the Civil War by Union Army war suppliers. In recent years, fraud by defense contractors and other government suppliers continues to be one of the biggest and most important areas of qui tam whistleblower litigation. For over 20 years, VSG federal fraud whistleblower attorneys have been successfully representing whistleblowers in government contractor fraud cases.
