Azerbaijani Diaspora sends letters to Congress members and local media regarding recent Medicare health insurance fraud by Armenian mafia

01 June 2011 [13:20] - TODAY.AZ
The Azerbaijani Diaspora members in the US have started a new campaign by sending hundreds of letter to the Congress members and local media regarding the recent Medicare health insurance fraud by Armenian mafia.

"In May 2011, Arsen Bedzhanyan and Sargis Tadevosyan were arrested by US Secret Service and the West Virginia State Police in connection to Medicare fraud in West Virginia", the letters inform.

"On February 16, 2011 nearly 100 criminals of Armenian Power gang in Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL and Denver, CO, arresting 74 individuals on charges of racketeering, bank fraud schemes, identity theft, kidnappings and drug trafficking".

According to the authors, the criminals have used credit card skimming tools and fraudulent checks to steal credit and debit card information and empty accounts of hundreds of customers of retail stores; conducted a mega-fraud scheme targeting bank accounts of elderly US citizens causing losses of over US $10 million.

"This is the third time in less than a year when Armenian-American criminal groups have been busted for defrauding the government, businesses and specifically elderly citizens. In October 2010, FBI, IRS and local law enforcement agencies arrested 52 ethnic Armenians across the US in an attempt of stealing $163 million from Medicaid”, the letters remind adding, “this is not the first case of fraud by Armenian gangsters in the US, nor is it the biggest. Just two years ago, in 2008, some 6 Armenians were indicted by the FBI on a US $2 million fraud case. In 1999, we were all shocked to learn that Armenian criminals defrauded Medi-Cal (that’s California’s Medicaid) of US $1 billion. That’s one billion dollars! That’s by far the largest medical fraud case in the history of the world".

"Nevertheless, we as a nation keep providing massive annual financial aid to Armenia and to the criminal regime in Nagorno-Karabakh. This must stop!” say the Azeri Diaspora members.

“We should not allow Armenian criminals to easily come into the US and cheat us out of our money, whilst enjoying a safe-heaven back in Armenia, under the protection of the president of the country, who in turn takes our aid dollars and then ships weapons to kill our soldiers in Iraq".

"As US taxpayers, we are very much concerned about fraud, racketeering and taking advantage of our elderly citizens and call on you to be wary about financial aid to Armenian government linked to Armenian fraudsters in US and ask you to increase the funding for our law enforcement agencies instead".
