Pure Collection – Customs Fraud ($908,100)

Posted  January 21, 2018

Constantine Cannon represented whistleblower Andrew Patrick, who worked for Pure Collection from 2010 to 2014, first as a sales representative in its U.K. call center and then in its U.K. packaging department. Mr. Patrick’s qui tam, or whistleblower, lawsuit alleged that since 2007 the defendants fraudulently and systematically avoided paying U.S. customs duties on its goods shipped from the United Kingdom to customers in the United States. Pure Collection and the e-retailer’s acting CEO, Samantha Harrison, have collectively agreed to a settlement of $908,100 to the U.S. Government. This lawsuit was one of the first to be brought by a U.K. whistleblower in which the U.S. Government intervened and successfully resolved the whistleblower’s False Claims Act allegations. Mr. Patrick will be awarded 18 percent of the total settlement.
