Whenever any suit is hereafter filed by the State of Louisiana, or by any parish or other political subdivision thereof, or by any public board thereof, or by any political or public corporation created under or by the constitution or laws thereof, against any corporation, firm or individual to recover money or property alleged to have been obtained from the plaintiff by the defendant through fraud, or through rebates or overcharges in connection with any contract or transaction, and a writ of attachment is prayed for, the fact that it lies within the power of the defendant to mortgage, assign or dispose of his property, rights or credits, or some part thereof, or to convert his property into money or evidences of debt, during the pendency of the suit, shall be deemed sufficient to justify an affidavit by the plaintiff, for the purposes of obtaining such writ of attachment, that the defendant is about to mortgage, assign or dispose of his property, right or credits, or some part thereof, with intent to defraud his creditors, or is about to convert his property into money or evidences of debt, with intent to place it beyond the reach of his creditors.
