Whistleblower Awarded $18 Million To Address Pre-law Magnet Students
West Palm Beach Attorney Lynn Szymoniak who uncovered the “robo-signing” fraud perpetrated by some of the nation’s largest mortgage banks, will share her personal story with the Gerald A Williams Esq. Law Academy students at Palm Beach Lakes Community High School.
Ms. Szymoniak will address the students on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 from 9:00am -10:40am. Her presentation will focus on public interest law and her successful whistleblower case where she uncovered fake documents in regards to foreclosure cases. There will also be a question and answer period.
Ms. Szymoniak first appeared on 60 Minutes in April of 2011, claiming that the country’s four largest mortgage services had defrauded the federal government by creating fake documents to replace lost or nonexistent ones in order to receive government-funded payments. Recently those banks settled and under the False Claims Act, a private person, also known as a “whistleblower,” is entitled to a share of the money recovered by the U.S. Government.
