Georgia: Indian-American Businessman Arrested in Super Bowl Ticket Fraud

Ketan Shah was arrested recently at a casino in California after he skipped town with proceeds from a scam where he allegedly “sold” non-existent tickets to the Atlanta Super Bowl game.

Shah was described in news accounts as being a member of the board of the Georgia Indo-American Chamber of Commerce which quickly dumped him from the board.  See here.

Does it annoy you, it does me! to see that there are organizations like this one in America where they are working to promote their own ethnic group.

What happened to the idea of assimilation? Is America a hodgepodge of ethnic and racial groups each looking out for their own interests?  I never see the ‘melting pot’ pushers try to discourage this practice for ‘new Americans.’

From the Gwinnett Daily Post,

Gwinnett businessman accused in $1 million Super Bowl ticket scam arrested in California casino

The Gwinnett County man accused of scamming people out of nearly $1 million in Super Bowl tickets has been arrested in California.

Police began looking for Ketan Shah days before the Super Bowl, after several people, including his own mother, claimed the Lawrenceville man went missing after taking thousands of dollars.

At least six people had reported to Gwinnett Police that Shah had offered to sell them Super Bowl tickets. One of the victims also reported he paid $500,000 for his entertainment company to host a large Super Bowl event at “an arena.”

The setup, incident reports show, was the same for almost all of the victims: Shah, a well-connected businessman in Gwinnett who was a board member of the Georgia Indo-American Chamber of Commerce, would provide the victims with their requested number of tickets after they sent Shah their money.

But that never happened, said Cpl. Wilbert Rundles, a spokesman for the Gwinnett County Police Department.

It was discovered that Shah was reported as a missing person in December. He returned home and was removed from the system, police said. It was discovered that he had gone to Las Vegas, Nevada, on what was described as a mid-life crisis. He left again a couple days later and his family had not seen him since.

Heck, this is such a strange fraud scheme, I’m going to leave it uncategorized!

By the way, as I build an archive of stories here, use the categories found in the right hand sidebar at Frauds and Crooks for further reference.

Tennessee: Doctor/Pastor Indicted in Massive Drug Sting at Pain Clinic

Although the 45-count indictment occurred in December, good for The Tennessean to now publish this substantial story about a Nigerian ‘new American’ alleged crook.

Editor:  I should subtitle posts like this:  ‘when new Americans kill us!’

Here is the news (hat tip: Tomarose),

Tennessee pain clinic handed out opioids at ‘cattle calls’, says undercover federal agent

It was October 2017 when the undercover federal agent slipped into the Clarksville pain clinic for the third time, hiding in plain sight among dozens of patients crowded into a small waiting room.

A receptionist called out 20 names, then the agent lined up with other patients.

They were each handed a prescription slip. Then they waited. A few hours later, the receptionist called their names again, collected their money and handed all of them drugs.

The undercover agent paid $377. He left with 84 Oxycodone tablets, an anti-inflammation drug and a muscle relaxant. Nobody bothered to examine him. He never saw a doctor.

This is how federal prosecutors say prescriptions were handled at the clinic of Samson Orusa, a Middle Tennessee doctor and pastor who allegedly wrote 66,353 prescriptions for addictive drugs, including opioids, from 2014 to 2017.

Orusa was indicted on charges of drug trafficking and healthcare fraud last year, and his attorney has vowed to fight the allegations in court.

samson-and-abigail
Orusa, 56, has for about 20 years run a medical practice in Clarksville [50 miles Northwest of Nashville] and been pastor at God’s Sanctuary Church International, which he runs with his wife, Abigail, who uses the church title of “prophetess.” Orusa attended medical school at the University of Benin in Nigeria and performed his residency at Columbia University in New York, according to a state licensing database.

Federal court records, recently obtained by The Tennessean, describe the investigation in more detail than ever before, revealing undercover agents visited Orusa’s clinic five times in 2017.

Investigators also logged when Orusa came and went each day and filmed the clinic parking lot for three months.

And what they saw was alarming, court document state. Patients at Orusa’s clinic were rarely examined by the doctor and often prescribed opioids in large groups through what authorities refer to as “cattle calls.”

[….]

The newly obtained court documents also detail how Orusa allegedly profited from mass prescribing, collecting more than $1 million in cash during a six-month span in 2017. Prosecutors are currently trying to seize the contents of six personal bank accounts to which they say Orusa funneled more than $920,000 in illegal profits.

Most of that money came from drug sales, court documents state, but Orusa is also accused of defrauding the government by billing Medicare or Medicaid for examinations that he couldn’t possibly have done.

More here.

Some of the stories about Orusa allege that patients died of drug overdoses while under his ‘care.’

question markI can assure you that this type of practice is going on near you. Watch for it! If you have a friend or family member going to a pain clinic (especially one run by a foreign doctor), keep an eye on them and the clinic and don’t hesitate to turn in the doctor/clinic if you see something fishy.

 

 

 

Ohio University Student from Oman Indicted in Rape/Kidnapping Case

Diversity is beautiful alert!

This story is from December, but I’m writing about it for several reasons (thanks to reader Anne Marie for sending it).

First I see that the story never made it to any news outside the state of Ohio. Why is that? I have a good guess!

But, more interesting to me is that the story says he is scheduled for trial this month (February), but I can’t find another word about the case.

MohammedAl-Mashrafi

If someone has a few minutes to dig, help me find out if Mohammed Al-Mashrafi is scheduled for trial this month, was the case postponed, or did he post bail and skip the country?

 

From Dayton Daily News,

Ohio University student indicted in rape case

 

An Ohio University student was indicted on nine charges, including rape, kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and menacing by stalking.

Mohammed Al-Mashrafi was arrested earlier this month by Athens police.

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi is accused of stalking multiple women in and around Athens, including by social media, our partners, CBS affiliate WBNS-TV in Columbus reported.

“Al-Mashrafi is further accused of vising (sic) a local spa where he was observed fondling himself and, upon being asked to leave, refused to pay for his services and ultimately left without paying. On Dec. 5, 2018, Al-Mashrafi’s behavior escalated and he is alleged to have held a female against her will and forcing himself on her sexually,” Blackburn said.

[….]

Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi, who had a bond set at $5 million, is in the United States on a student visa from Oman. A trial date is scheduled for February.

 

Search Mohammed Al-Mashrafi and see that stories about his indictment were pretty widespread in Ohio at the time.

Gee, I wonder if this guy will be in that diversity-is-beautiful propaganda film being made in Ohio, the one that inspired me to write this blog!

question markWhere is Mohammed now?  Help me find out!

What We Lost When Trump Fired Jeff Sessions

 

 “He obsessed over the connection between crime and immigration, and he believed that Islam was an inherently violent religion.” 
(Andrew McCabe says of Jeff Sessions)
Trump and Sessions in Alabama
Sessions went out on a limb to become first US Senator to support the Trump presidential bid in early 2016.  https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/alabama-s-jeff-sessions-becomes-first-senator-endorse-trump-n527661

On the day after Trump’s big cave that will now allow more migration to your towns and cities, the Leftwing publication ‘Slate’ joyfully tells us about how the liar and fraud—former Deputy Director of the FBI Andy McCabe—described his former boss Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Of course this is meant to further denigrate a man who for decades fought tirelessly in the US Senate against amnesty for illegal aliens and was the first US Senator to back Donald Trump in his bid for the presidency.

 

From the hard Left Slate,

According to a Wall Street Journal review of the book, McCabe wrote in his book that Sessions was only interested in immigration issues. He obsessed over the connection between crime and immigration, and he believed that Islam was an inherently violent religion, according to the Post. When presented with a counterterrorism case, he would first ask where the suspect was born or where the suspect’s parents were from. “He blamed immigrants for nearly every societal problem and uttered racist sentiments with shocking callousness,” Miller concluded from McCabe’s book.

McCabe’s assessment is surprising in only that it comes so bluntly from a man who once was acting head of the FBI but now seems intent on speaking out against the men who made his professional and personal life so difficult for 10 months (before he was fired just hours before his planned retirement, blocking him from receiving his full pension benefits). Sessions has a long, long history of making racist and anti-immigrant comments, while also implementing racist and anti-immigrant policies.

 

You can go read more if you wish, but let me ask you, don’t you agree with Sessions’ assessments (here cast, of course, in the harshest of terms by Slate)?  You must, or you wouldn’t be reading my blog!

question markOne day maybe we will know if it was Jared (and his open borders business pals) who really wanted Sessions out of the way!  If Stephen Miller (who came to the Trump campaign with Senator Sessions) leaves the White House you will then know that the open borders (cheap labor) business lobby has succeeded. 

Health and Human Service’s Fugitives from Justice: all New Americans?

This is a very cool website!

But, it shows what suckers we Americans are!

Below are the Top Ten fugitives from justice at the Office of Inspector General at the Dept. of Health and Human Services.

Some individually ripped-off Medicare and Medicaid to the tune of millions of dollars, collectively the number must exceed a billion.  HHS lists 170 who have escaped justice and are in hiding or have fled the country and returned to their home country.

What do you notice about the top ten?  All are foreigners who were in the US busily setting-up scam operations!

Top ten fugitives
This is a screenshot. Go to the website and click on the links beneath each picture to see what these foreign scammers stole from us and how they did it.  https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/fugitives/

 

I looked up the ‘bios’ for a few of the top ten:

Slepak is in Russia.

Onajobi is in Nigeria.

Moreira is in Spain.

And, Tilong is in Cameroon.

Of course what I most want to know (but we are never told!) is how they got into the US (presumably legally!) in the first place!

I have said this before, but I am convinced someone could build an entire political campaign around finding and bringing to justice frauds, crooks and criminals.

By the way, if you are new to Frauds and Crooks, know that one fun thing to do is to use the language of the Left whenever you can.

One of their favorite phrases for you to co-opt is “new American!”  Watch for it, they (and their media lackeys) use it everywhere in place of the word “immigrant” or “refugee.”

The word “refugee” previously had a positive connotation, but got tainted over the last few years. Gee, I wonder why!

So, they needed new positive-sounding words, thus “new American.”

They never use the word “alien” and they sure don’t want to hear the word “foreigner.”

question markSo what do you do? Use the words “foreigner,” “alien” or “illegal alien” (or “illegal immigrant”) when appropriate and definitely have fun with “new American!”

 

 

Former U.S. Counterintelligence Agent Charged With Espionage on Behalf of Iran

Normally I prefer to not write about stories that are being widely covered by the media, but this one is so awful that I want to make sure all of you see it.

 

wanted by FBI

 

From Voice of America,

A former U.S. Air Force counterintelligence officer who defected to Iran nearly six years ago has been charged with revealing classified military information to the Iranian government and helping Iran target her former co-workers, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.

Monica Elfriede Witt, 39, allegedly disclosed the existence of a highly classified military intelligence collection program and the identity of a U.S. intelligence officer to Iranian spy agencies.

A grand jury indictment unsealed Wednesday also charged Witt with helping Iranian intelligence services target at least eight U.S. agents who had interacted or worked with her.

An arrest warrant was issued for Witt, who remains at large and is believed to live in Iran.

Four Iranians working on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) also were named in the indictment and face charges of conspiracy, computer intrusions and identity theft in connection with targeting Witt’s former co-workers in 2014 and 2015.

Much more here.

For more details see the US Dept. of Justice press release here.

But, for even more details see Heavy.com.

Witt was born in Texas, converted to Islam and was also a supporter of ‘Occupy Wall Street.’

I realize I don’t have a category here at Frauds, Crooks and Criminals for this story, so I’m making a new one—Betraying Americans (betraying America!).  And, I will tag the story ‘treason.’

Connecticut: Illegal Alien Arrested in Gruesome Murder

You have probably seen this news about another illegal alien killer, however I’m mentioning it because the sensational aspects of the case have made it news around the world.

The victim was beautiful and her body was stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in the woods making the news apparently more interesting to the mainstream media than the Reno, Nevada case I reported recently where four older Americans were killed in their homes by another illegal alien creep—a story that didn’t get nearly the coverage this one is getting.

The man alleged to have murdered the young and beautiful Valerie Reyes is in the country illegally as a visa overstay.

From the Washington Times,

Suspect in suitcase death in U.S. illegally, authorities say

A man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and dumping her body in a suitcase in Connecticut is a citizen of Portugal who has been in the U.S. illegally for more than a year, federal authorities said Wednesday as the victim’s loved ones gathered for her funeral.

Javier Da Silva Rojas, who had been living in New York City, was taken into custody Monday and charged with kidnapping resulting in death in the killing of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes, of New Rochelle, New York. The charge carries the possibility of the death penalty.

Da Silva, also 24, entered the U.S. on May 8, 2017, through the Visa Waiver Program and was required to leave by Aug. 5, 2017, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement.

If you are interested in reading more about the alleged killer, simply search his name and you will see stories about the murder everywhere.

question markWe spend a lot of time talking about “the Wall,” but the feds need to do more to round-up visa overstays and get them the heck out of the country!  Why not let the President know how you feel about the need for greater enforcement!
