The False Claims Act

The False Claims Act was passed in 1863 during the height of the Civil War to curtail abuse of public funds by unscrupulous suppliers of material for the war effort. The Act allows the federal government to recover treble damages plus penalties of $5,500 to $11,000 per violation from any person or entity that knowingly submits false claims for payment to the federal government.
