FBI busts Armenian crime syndicate for Medicare fraud


Federal law enforcement authorities have announced charges against dozens of members of a vast Armenia criminal syndicate that used phantom health care clinics and stolen identities to fraud Medicare out of $163 million, the US Department of Justice said Wednesday in a statement.

Prosecutors in New York and Los Angeles charged 73 people. The investigation, dubbed Diagnosis Dollars, resulted in the arrests of 52 people across the U.S. in what authorities described as "the largest Medicare fraud scheme ever perpetrated by a single criminal enterprise."

Those arrested are being charged with credit card fraud, identity theft, federal racketeering, immigration fraud, and even distribution of contraband cigarettes and stolen Viagra.
