VA Scams in Florida
Last updated 10/7/2020 at 11:26am
What’s going on in Florida? It appears more criminals are operating there than in other areas of the country.
One criminal near Tampa worked at the Department of Veterans Affairs as a transportation assistant who awarded contracts to vendors to give rides to VA clinic patients. Vendors had to pay kickbacks to him to be awarded contracts.
Eventually the criminal started up two transportation companies of his own, registering them in the names of his wife and daughter to hide his involvement. Invoices were submitted, and they were paid to the tune of $305,000 over the course of 17 months....
