Seventy-three defendants, including a number of alleged members and associates of an Armenian-American organized crime enterprise, were charged in indictments in five judicial districts with various health care fraud-related crimes involving more than $163 million in fraudulent billing.  In this national, multi-agency investigation, 52 were arrested in the largest Medicare fraud scheme ever perpetrated by a single criminal enterprise and charged by the Department of Justice.   The defendants are charged with engaging in numerous fraud activities, including highly-organized, multi-million-dollar schemes to defraud Medicare and insurance companies by submitting fraudulent bills for medically unnecessary treatments or treatments that were never performed. According to the indictments, the defendants allegedly stole the identities of doctors and thousands of Medicare beneficiaries and operated at least 118 different fake clinics in 25 states for the purposes of submitting Medicare reimbursements.

Forty-four defendants were charged in two indictments with racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to commit the following acts: health care fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, fraud in connection with identity theft, credit card fraud, and immigration fraud. In addition, seven defendants were charged with health care fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering conspiracy, money laundering, forfeiture, and aggravated identity theft. Six defendants were charged with health care fraud, conspiracy to commit health care fraud, money laundering conspiracy, and aggravated identity theft. Six defendants were charged with health care fraud, mail fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and aggravated identity theft. Ten defendants were charged in two indictments with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, criminal forfeiture, aggravated identity theft, aiding and abetting, and causing an act to be done.

The Mirzoyan-Terdjanian Organization is named for its principal leaders, Davit Mirzoyan and Robert Terdjanian. The leadership of the organization is based in Los Angeles and New York, and its operations extend throughout the world.  Among the defendants charged with racketeering is Armen Kazarian, who is alleged to be a “Vor,” a term translated as “Thief-in-Law” and refers to a member of a select group of high-level criminals from Russia and the countries that has been part of the former Soviet Union, including Armenia. This is the first time a Vor has ever been charged for a racketeering offense, and the first time since 1996 that a known Vor has been arrested on any federal charge.

Entrepreneur Sentenced to 76 Months in Prison for Identity Theft January 31, 2010

TERRENCE CHALK was sentenced this week to 76 months in prison for his participation in a conspiracy to make false statements and representations to financial institutions in connection with applications for loans, lines of credit, and credit cards, and for the crime of aggravated identity theft for using another person’s Social Security number to seek a line of credit from a bank. CHALK must pay restitution of $750,000.

CHALK, the principal of a White Plains-based computer systems company, and others submitted applications for loans, lines of credit and credit cards, in the names of various business entities controlled by CHALK (the “CHALK Entities”) that contained false information and representations. Some of the applications falsely represented that certain Chalk employees and clients were guarantors for the loans and/or were owners and officers of the various CHALK Entities when in fact they were not.

Included in the applications was personal identification information, such as names, addresses and Social Security numbers of the CHALK Entities’ employees, agents, or clients, without their knowledge or permission. While seeking to obtain the loans, lines of credit, and/or credit cards, CHALK and others met with representatives of financial institutions and falsely represented the ownership of the Chalk entities and the identity of the guarantors and/or supplied false financial information. Among other things, CHALK sought a loan using the name and personal information of a dead relative. CHALK continued his criminal conduct even after his initial arrest in this case, when from prison, he directed others on the outside to submit false information to BMW of Ridgefield, Connecticut, in order to secure BMW vehicles for, among others, CHALK’s girlfriend and someone who signed a bond to help secure CHALK’s release on bail. CHALK’s release on bail ended in July 2008 with his arrest in connection with the car leasing scheme.
