  1. Armenian gangsters charged in $160M Medicare scam Dozens of reputed Armenian gangsters were busted by the feds yesterday for a “smorgasbord” of offenses that includes the largest-ever Medicare fraud by a single crime syndicate. The size and sophistication of the coast-to-coast scheme — which generated more than $160 million in bogus bills — “puts the traditional Mafia to shame,” Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara said. The ring created at least 118 “phantom” medical clinics in 25 states that used stolen identities of doctors and patients to rip off more than $35 million in taxpayer funds. In reality, most of the clinics were nothing more than rented Mail Boxes Etc. addresses, Bharara said. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said many of the fake invoices — which included forensic pathologists charging for live office visits, and obstetricians conducting allergy tests — were cooked up in an office above a Brooklyn auto-body shop. Charges were also filed in California, Georgia, New Mexico and Ohio, alleging a total of $163 million in fraud by 73 defendants. Those charged in New York include reputed crime boss Armen Kazarian, who holds the title of “vor,” which authorities said is similar to a Mafia godfather. Kazarian is the first vor ever charged with racketeering in the United States, according to the Department of Justice. The 46-year-old resident of Glendale, Calif. — who drives a $350,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom — was secretly recorded making profane threats against “those who have failed to pay him or show him proper respect,” court papers say. During one call on July 21, he allegedly ranted to an underling about someone named “Alik” who had called Kazarian while drunk. “Find that son of a bitch. . . I am going to kick his ass,” court papers quote Kazarian as saying. Also arrested was Robert Terdjanian, 35, of Brooklyn, who was described as the East Coast ringleader of a gang aligned with Kazarian. Terdjanian, along with Davit Mirzoyan of Los Angeles, oversaw a multitude of schemes that included sales of illegal drugs, untaxed cigarettes and Viagra, authorities said. The suspects allegedly laundered some of their dirty profits by purchasing casino chips in Las Vegas. Another suspected scam involved co-defendant Aron Chervin, who allegedly recruited strippers to file false car-insurance claims. Terdjanian — who was held without bail– was also accused of threatening to disembowel an extortion victim at a Brighton Beach restaurant in May. Defense lawyer Scott Tulman said Terdjanian “denies the allegations.
  2. Eight ARMENIANS arrested in alleged car insurance fraud scheme Eight people from Glendale and Burbank were arrested on suspicion of insurance fraud after allegedly staging two car accidents and reporting fraudulent vandalism that, taken together, swindled multiple insurers out of USD 82,000, officials announced Monday, Burbank Leader reports. Investigators were tipped off roughly two years ago by reports that Suren Grigorian, 45, allegedly filed a fraudulent insurance claim for vandalism to his 2007 Mercedes sedan that was parked at his Burbank home, according to the California Department of Insurance. An informant alleged that Grigorian damaged his own car, reportedly scamming the insurer of roughly USD 20,000, officials said. Further investigation revealed that seven other suspects — family members and close associates of Grigorian — were allegedly involved in staging two car accidents in 2008, defrauding multiple insurers of USD 62,000. In addition to Grigorian, the suspects — Aida Akopian, 36; Seda Markarian, 62; Mamikon Hakobyan, 74; Masis Galstyan, 49; Rosa Galstyan, 42; Roza Issayan, 41; and Setik Patatanian, 49 — were arrested on Jan. 10, said Dave Althausen, spokesman for the state Department of Insurance. All of them — except for Setik Patatanian and Masis Galstyan, both of Glendale — are Burbank residents, Althausen said. If convicted, they each face up to five years in prison and fines of up to USD 50,000, officials said.
  3. That's pretty stupid considering it's just cigars. You can get them a million different ways and being limited to only purchasing from the supplier doesn't make sense as it's not a realistic scenario. I'd say just sell the illegal Cubans publicly because clearly nobody knows they're illegal. Maybe things like this would be settled a lot more efficiently if we had a functioning RPQM team.
