Other Types of Fraud

Expansive new government programs and increased spending stress the need for stringent government oversight by private citizens acting as whistleblowers under the False Claims Act.

Although the False Claims Act is often considered in the context of pharmaceutical, and health care, or defense industry fraud, the growth of the federal government has presented new circumstances that implicate by the broad scope of the False Claims Act.  Through amendments strengthening the False Claims Act, Congress has recognized the important role of private citizens acting as whistleblowers to restrain abuse of government programs and protect the integrity of taxpayer funds.

The following list illustrates a few examples of new fields in which False Claims Act liability has increasingly become apparent, however, the list is not exhaustive and it bears emphasis that the False Claims Act applies to any false claim presented, submitted, or caused to be submitted to the government for payment or property.

Agricultural Subsidies
