We are currently investigating potential fraud claims related to the CARES Act of March 27, 2020. The CARES Act is a $2 trillion stimulus package that includes bailouts, grants, loans, and other payments to businesses as part of the United States government’s response to the novel coronavirus. Following the 2008/2009 financial crisis, the United States implemented similar programs, including TARP and HAMP. Several of the big businesses that received those payments did so through fraud against the government. It is likely that some of the companies receiving the $2 trillion in the CARES Act will also commit fraud. In order to obtain CARES Act money, corporations will need to meet certain conditions. If those companies lie about meeting those conditions, that is fraud. Those companies will also have certain obligations, including to their workers, if they receive those funds. If they lie about satisfying those conditions, that is also fraud. The False Claims Act is an incredibly powerful tool to blow the whistle on corporate fraud used to obtain CARES Act money and defraud the government and American taxpayers. Whistleblowers who come forward and help the government expose corporate fraud and recover ill-gotten gains are eligible to recover between 15-30 percent of the funds.
