Twelve Illinois residents are among the just about two dozen people who experience federal fees for an alleged $26 million coverage-fraud plan that lasted just about a decade.
Prosecutors say the defendants submitted wrong programs to get lifetime insurance plan guidelines and then tricked carriers into spending demise positive aspects by lying about the identities of deceased individuals.
The feds say the defendants would pay back premiums on the procedures for two yrs, until finally the period for contestability expired. Promises for demise advantages would then be submitted applying untrue demise certificates. The defendants are also accused of lying to legislation enforcement, initial responders, health-related personnel, funeral property employees and cemetery employees.
The indictment seeks forfeiture of at least $26 million in alleged sick-gotten gains, as well as 9 luxury motor vehicles, eight Rolex watches and houses in Orland Park, Bridgeview and Burbank.
Those people charged from the Chicago spot include things like James Mills, Juley Ely, Ginger Ely and Joe Rouga of Oak Lawn Frank Costello of Hoffman Estates Mary Bacco of Bridgeview Steve Montega, Niko Ristick and Ricky Blanca of Orland Park Mark Blanca and Diana Lumas of Burbank and Joe John of Arlington Heights.
