Eglin Air Force Base active-duty member, Lazarus Wallace, has agreed to settle allegations that he violated the False Claims Act ("FCA") by knowingly providing false information in support of a Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loan. Wallace agreed to pay $63,327.54 in treble damages under the FCA. The settlement was announced by Jason R. Coody, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida. "Serving our nation as a member of the military is a position of honor, deserving of high esteem," said U.S. Attorney Coody. "The fraudulent acts of this individual are incompatible with such service. We remain committed to hold accountable all who abused this crisis-based loan system."
