When importing goods into the United States, individuals and companies often have to pay government-imposed tariffs or customs duties on these goods. Attempts to avoid paying duties or tariffs may be fraud against the government. Whistleblowers with information about customs fraud may be eligible to bring a qui tam lawsuit under the False Claims Act.
Some of the most common types of customs and shipping fraud include the following:
If you have information that a company or individual is engaged in customs fraud, you can blow the whistle through a qui tam lawsuit. Under the False Claims Act, successful qui tam whistleblowers can receive an award of between 15% and 30% of the amount recovered.
