Are you in the market for a 2014 Maserati GranTurismo or 2014 BMW X6 seized by the NYC Attorney General’s Office as part of a $9.9 million Medicaid fraud case?
According to the NYDalyNews.com The cars belonged to Ahmed Hamed, who co-owned a pharmacy in the Bronx that was the focal point of a scam. The attorney general charged Hamed, co-owner Tarek Elsayed, and pharmacist Mohammed Hassan Ahmed with dispensing HIV medications to patients and then buying the drugs back for cash to sell to other sick patients.
Meanwhile, the trio pocketed close to $10 million, in less than a year, from multiple government-sponsored health care programs.
The three Queens men were charged with felony grand larceny, scheming to defraud the government, and money laundering. Yay!
State officials “anticipate lots of interest” for the Nov 2nd auction, said Heather Groll, a spokeswoman for the state’s Office of General Services.
The cars will be available for inspection at 8 a.m. on the day of the auction at the Harriman State Office Building Campus in Albany. The auction begins at 9 a.m.
Proceeds from the sale of the two cars will be transferred to the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Unit.
