Russian mafia in Germany: nursing fraudulent scheme disclosed, billions of euros earned
The losses of German insurance companies from the activities of organizations providing fictitious services for the care of disabled people and patients have exceeded €1.2bn euros annually only by preliminary assessment.
The German police uncovered a fraudulent scheme, organized by the Russian mafia, Focus writes. According to the edition, in the country there is a whole network of about 230 organizations that provide fictitious services for caring for the sick and disabled. The 'roof' of a criminal association is thieves in law from Russia. Immigrants from Eastern Europe mainly worked in these organizations.
The results of the investigation are based on searches made in September last year, the author of the article notes. In particular, law enforcers managed to find clues in the nursing offices and private apartments showing evidence of links with organized crime - along with various documents and electronic data, two Kalashnikov assault rifles and two semi-automatic weapons with ammunition were confiscated.
In addition, under the control of organizations there were several fictitious companies, allegedly functioning both in Germany and abroad. According to the source of the edition, some of their owners have already had a criminal record for the murder, while others are suspected of contract killings. Many are involved in other criminal cases: money laundering, 'patronizing' and gambling.
The investigators established facts: when patients who needed care of the nurse 24 hours a day received assistance only a few hours a day, while the insurance company paid 24-hour care. As a result, German insurance companies suffered an annual loss of €1.25 billion. It is noted that 'in share' with the employees of the patronage services there were both doctors and relatives of patients.
