There are systems designed to protect those who alert authorities to an act of fraud within a corporation. In order to successfully report an act of fraud, you must have evidence that proves your claim without a doubt that an individual or corporation has committed an act with intent to defraud.
In order to prove that corporate fraud has occurred, you must provide evidence that shows the following:
- The corporation made a claim that was said to represent a fact.
- The corporation’s representation of fact was untrue.
- Those who made the claim knew that the fact was untrue, or that that the corporation made its representation of fact with reckless disregard for its truth.
- The corporation made its representation of fact in an effort to convince others to act in reliance on said representation.
- Those who relied on the corporation’s claim suffered damages as a direct result of placing trust in the corporation.
In Massachusetts, Chapter 93A is a powerful legal tool that allows the Attorney General to take action against businesses engaging in unfair or deceptive activities, such as corporate fraud, against consumers. In order to file a Chapter 93A claim, you must do the following steps:
- Send a demand letter to the offending business at least 30 days before filing a court action.
- The letter must identify yourself, describe the unfair or deceptive act or practice you believe is at issue, and identify the damages you suffered.
- The business then has 30 days to provide a prompt and fair settlement of your claim before you are allowed to take legal action against it.
