What are common military contractor fraud cases?
Legal cases involving allegations of military contractor fraud have existing for hundreds of years. The United States government created the False Claims Act in 1863 specifically to address allegations of corruption and fraud involving the United States military.
Some of the most common legal cases involving military contractor fraud include allegations of:
- Price fixing among contractors
- Kickbacks from contractors to military or government officials
- Bribes from contractors to military or government officials
- Selling the military defective products
- Billing the military for services not performed
- Double billing the military for services or products
- Overcharging the military for products or services
Many military contractor fraud cases are the result of formal complaints filed by whistleblowers. What many people might not realize is whistleblowers who report allegations of suspected military contractor fraud can be eligible for financial compensation under the False Claims Act.
Individuals sometimes file these complaints without fully understanding the law in the hopes of being financially compensated.
