Michael and Julian Omidi are now accused of stealing the identities of four L.A. area doctors as part of a medical-billing scheme. The names of the doctors, as well as their medical license numbers, were allegedly used to create dummy corporations that engaged in fraudulent medical billing, according to the suit, filed in L.A. Superior Court. A spokesman for the two brothers called the allegations "false." From KPCC:
"The doctors were unsuspecting of this until some of them started receiving 1099s in the mail from insurance companies for tax reporting purposes saying last year we paid you hundreds of thousands of dollars and the doctors said, that wasn't me. I didn't get the money," says Alex Robertson, the Westlake Village attorney who is representing the doctor plaintiffs. "So that launched the investigation and we obtained records from the Secretary of State's office, the (California) Medical Board and other agencies to uncover this scheme."
