Frisco man has been sentenced to federal prison for wire fraud violations in the Eastern District of Texas

Frisco, Texas – In the Eastern District of Texas, a resident of Frisco has been handed down a sentence by the federal courts following his engagement in unlawful activities related to wire fraud, as declared today by U.S. Attorney Damien M. Diggs.

Oscar Simon Ndereva will spend 54 months in federal prison

Oscar Simon Ndereva, aged 45, entered a guilty plea to charges of wire fraud, culminating in U.S. District Judge Sean D. Jordan mandating a sentence of 54 months in federal prison.

Unraveling the intricate tapestry of his illicit activities, as presented during the court proceedings, it was discovered that Ndereva masterminded a deceptively complex scheme intended to exploit private health insurance providers. Ndereva utilized a counterfeit healthcare pharmacy, operating under the ostensibly innocuous moniker “Healogix,” as a conduit through which he would submit illegitimate claims.

The funds obtained through this deceitful machination were siphoned directly into bank accounts, ingeniously established under the guise of an alternate identity. Ndereva’s manipulation did not cease there, however.

Throughout the duration of this elaborate scam, Ndereva demonstrated a cunning and calculated approach to obscuring his ill-gotten wealth. He conducted a shell game of sorts, perpetually moving the stolen funds across a myriad of accounts, an action which served to mask the true origins and nature of the money.

Ndereva tactically structured his check-cashing activities to evade financial reporting requirements, thereby further circumventing detection by law enforcement agencies. When the dust settled, it was determined that the fictitious company Healogix was responsible for the submission of over 780 fraudulent claims, aggregating to a staggering amount surpassing $5 million.

The investigation, which ultimately led to the dismantling of this intricate fraud operation, was the joint handiwork of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Health and Human Service – Office of Inspector General.

Department of Justice saw 351 False Claims Act settlements and judgments during the 2022 fiscal year

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has reported a particularly active year in combating fraudulent activities in the 2022 fiscal term. This period was marked by a substantial 351 settlements and judgments under the False Claims Act, establishing it as the year with the second-highest tally of such actions in the annals of DOJ history. These decisive interventions have had a significant financial impact, leading to recoveries that amount to an imposing total of $2.2 billion.

A detailed scrutiny of this mammoth sum reveals that the lion’s share—over $1.7 billion—was largely attributable to the healthcare sector. Various constituents of this industry found themselves in the crosshairs of justice, ranging from pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to providers of durable medical equipment. But it wasn’t confined to these alone.

Entities offering home health services and managed care were also implicated, as were hospitals, pharmacies, and hospice organizations. It would be remiss not to mention the individuals at the very heart of the medical industry—physicians—who also found themselves drawn into these legal entanglements.
