Yet Another Medicare Fraud Bust In Southern Brooklyn

Is this really news anymore?

Bensonhurst Bean reports:

A federal Medicare fraud task force has charged five individuals with conspiring to launder profits from defrauding Medicare at three local medical clinics.

According to an FBI press release, Larisa Shelabadova, 34, Alexander Zaretser, 31, Anatoly Kraiter, 33, Vladimir Kornev, 52, and Yelena Galper, 38 were charged by the Brooklyn Medicare Fraud Strike Force for their participation in the money laundering scheme. The release also states that five other individuals were charged from a previous indictment dating back to October 2010.

I think Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach and Bensonhurst ought to kick off a competition to see which neighborhood gets hit with the most fraud busts. Which do you think wins out? (Not taxpayers, that’s for damn sure.)
