Landlord Settles Qui Tam Suit Alleging Rental Housing Fraud

Georgia landlord, Yinka T. Omole (“Omole”), has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by whistleblower Lowanda Strickland under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act for $42,900.

The whistleblower suit alleges that between July 2007 and March 2010, Omole fraudulently received federally funded housing assistance payments while requiring Lowanda Strickland to pay additional payments for property rented to her and her family. Requiring tenants to make supplemental payments is in violation of the Section 8 housing assistance program rules.

Whistleblower Lowanda Strickland will receive a share of the settlement as a reward in accordance with the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.

If you have any firsthand knowledge, information, or evidence related to any federal, state, county or city government fraud, you should speak with an experienced qui tam lawyer who can help you understand your legal rights and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
