A fraudulent lien is one that is calculated either with an intentional effort to inflate the lien, or if it includes materials or services that were not actually provided on the job, or if it’s put together with such a reckless, sloppy approach that there was no intentionality in doing the math to determine the amount of the lien that it could be actually held to be fraudulent. It provides a cause of action. You can sue an individual. You can have the lien stripped, and you can recover your attorney’s fees as well.
