FBI raids Scooter Store headquarters

Company probed for $100 million Medicare fraud

(LONDON DAILY MAIL) More than 150 FBI agents and local cops have raided the Texas headquarters of The Scooter Store, the nation’s largest supplier of mobility vehicles, after the company allegedly defrauded Medicare by $100 million.¬†¬†

The company is accused of harassing doctors with constant phone calls and surgery visits in order to wear them down to prescribe their vehicles to patients who do not need them.

Most of the 1,200 workers at the headquarters were told the leave the building Wednesday after the FBI arrived and began scouring for billing documents as part of their investigation that could lead to criminal charges.
