Bergen County NJ Suspects Allegedly Behind Medical Investment Fraud Scheme
Police recently arrested and charged four people, including three Bergen County residents, with fraud offenses after the suspects allegedly defrauded investors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
According to the NJ prosecutors, the suspects stole around $350,000 from victims in medical investment schemes.
One of the fraud schemes involved a New Jersey doctor who handed over $250K for investment in a surgical center, while another fraud scheme involved a married couple investing $100,000 in a blood-testing lab that they thought was owned by the suspects.
Investigators first began to look into the suspects while investigating another fraud scheme originating out of Bergen County, New Jersey. In that scheme, a father and son allegedly stole $3 million.
Three of the suspects in this fraud case live in Ridgewood, Wyckoff, and Park Ridge, respectively, while the fourth suspect lives in NY.
One suspect faces criminal charges first degree money laundering and racketeering. The other suspects face criminal charges for second degree money laundering, theft by deception and conspiracy.
After the suspects were charged, New Jersey Acting Attorney General Robert Lougy issued a statement and said that the suspects are “really nothing but hustlers and con artists.”
