Any known cases of bad actors incentivizing VPN services to get user data?

Hello,

I plan to use a VPN to report someone anonymously to a third party. The person being reported might have access to the VPN's IP address. My main worry is them contacting the VPN service and somehow bribing them to get my original IP address / other account info. Is this a reasonable concern? are there cases of companies / individuals successfully doing that?

I've never encountered VPNs giving me away, other than that they were lagging or had bugs, and even had license issues.
