Any person who has legitimately obtained evidence of fraud which is not public knowledge may be able to file a qui tam case. Actions under the False Claims Act are commonly brought by employees or former employees of an individual or business who is committing fraud. Sometimes, knowledge of fraud may come from family members, significant others, or friends who are aware of the fraudulent activity.
