A: If by fictitious, you mean that he is lying to you about whether there is a lawsuit, that is pretty easy to check these days. Most courts have their dockets on line indexed by party names.

If you mean that an existing suit is a fraud, I’m sure the Commonwealth Attorney in the county would chat with you.

You may want to take a lawyer to this meeting or, at least, talk to one first. If it is a qui tam case, you might get a reward, but only if you do it right. If you were used in the fraud, you might be at risk for getting arrested and charged with conspiracy to defraud. Handling it correctly is likely to get you an immunity agreement as long as you find them before they are on to you. Again, getting to the result requires doing it correctly, and you need to be anonymous and untraceable until a deal is reached.
