Robert Levin, the AMRE executive and major stockholder, and Dennie D.Brown, the company’s chief accounting officer, were subject to the punishment in the form of a huge amount of fine by the SEC and the federal government. This punishment came from reasons. After AMRE going public, the company have the obligation to publish its financial reports but its performance did not meet expectation. The investigation by SEC shows that Robert took the first step of this scam, fearing the sharp drop of AMRE’s stock price because of the poor performance of company. He abetted Brown, to practice three main schemes to present a false appearance of profitable and pleasant financial reports. Firstly, they instructed Walter W.Richardson, the company’s vice president of data processing, to enter fictitious unset leads in the lead bank and they originally deferred the advertising cost mutiplying “cost per lead” and “unset leads” amount, so that they deferred a portion of its advertising costs in an asset account. The capitalizing of advertising expenses allowed them to inflate the net income for the first quarter of fiscal 1988.

I think it is interesting that you mentioned that O’Peele had signed off prescriptions for the electric power chairs using a purchased Medicare list. It showed how the government lacks some form of fraud protection. Medicare was paying for the wheelchair before making inquiries about what they were paying for. Medicare could probably detect fraud easier if bills where sent more promptly to patients before making payments. It makes me think of the high amount of pre-approved visits a person has when they visit a specialized doctor. It’s like once you see the doctor once and do not have to come back do they keep trying to bill for those pre-approved visits.

Mayes said Monday he referred patients to Berkeley for a few months in 2010, after a company representative told them the referral fees were legal. He stopped after realizing the fees weren't legal and noticing the company was performing cholesterol tests he had not ordered on blood samples. At the time, Berkeley and other companies were promoting genetic tests as a way to get a better look at cholesterol levels. He contacted the company's representative about the tests, asking them to stop the practice, but it continued. When he asked patients to bring in their insurance explanation of benefits, one showed
According to both Zac Cole in his article on Beattiecole.com (Cole, 2016) and to the authors of the SlideShare piece on the history of pay-per-click (ROI Marketing, 2014) the first recorded use of pay-per-click ads was on the internet gateway software Planet Oasis in 1996. Planet Oasis sold advertisers space in their online city which acted as a browser but with access only to those sites which were prepared to pay for visitors. The same year an early online search engine, Open Text Index, started offering better positioning for search results using a pay-per-click system. They however did so without the niceties of letting the users of the site know that that is what was happening causing quite the controversy.
The news article from Abc News, which was labeled as School $46 Million Fraud Scheme, seemed to be the strongest source as I looked through the news. The main purpose that came from this article, was to let the public know that without knowing your children could be enrolled in something that they don’t even attend. They want to bring this kind of stuff to parents’ attention, because what if someone’s child was an addict and wasn’t getting the help they needed because of people scamming? People also need to be aware of these situations because this just shows that you may trusted these people that are actually scamming the system.
