There just seems to be no end to devilish people that seek to fraud others or scam them into paying money for a fake cure to the coronavirus. At the start of the virus, there were people like pathetic Jimmy Bakker who tried to push that he had the cure to the virus.
And now one doctor named Charles Mok has been charged with health care fraud. He claimed that he had a coronavirus treatment that would keep people healthy. He also billed Medicare for what he called vitamin C infusions.
Mok was operating the Allure Medical Spa when he was caught lying to people about the preventative medicine he could sell them. Mok lied to Medicare by submitting claims for the injections that he was giving people.
He even lied at times on the forms claiming he gave the injections, but he did not administer the shot. There were times when he didn’t have to give the shot to his patients.
The complaint against him showed he gave the medicine to people that were high risk or who already were sick with the virus. He even promoted the cure through video which claimed that the symptoms were reduced, and the length of the sickness would be less for the patient that got his cure.
He claimed that his cure would help the immune system of sick patients. Mok is a liar. There is no cure or vaccine for the virus that has been approved by the FDA. He was just interested in lining his pockets with money from the insurance companies.
Matthew Schneider is the U.S. Attorney on the case. He stated “Dr. Mok is charged with exploiting the current pandemic to defraud the Medicare program and putting the safety and health of his patients at risk in doing so. These are serious allegations, and my office is committed to prosecuting any medical professional who attempts to use the Covid-19 crisis to defraud patients or insurers.”
Mok was confronted by members of his staff about their concerns about what he was doing. But, he chose to ignore them and threatened them with their jobs if they did not promote the cure. He is quoted as saying things like “If you won’t treat COVID patients in the fear that they would expose vein patients you need to shut down!”
What Mok did was what every Democrat does when someone challenges them. They threaten the other person to make them back down. Mok and the Democrats are bullies.
Mok clearly was more concerned about the money that the health of his patients. He called the other staff members “cowards” and shouted that this was his opportunity to “capture the market.”
He was looking for a way to take advantage of the people. When the virus showed up he took that vantage point and ran with it. Except it blew up in his face and now he gets to face jail time for his criminal actions.
In one case, staff members would be told to stay quiet if they knew an employee was sick with the virus. He told the sick people to keep treating patients and for them not to self-quarantine. Mok does not care about people.
Schneider also stated that “Dr. Mok is charged with exploiting the current pandemic to defraud the Medicare program and putting the safety and health of his patients at risk in doing so. These are serious allegations, and my office is committed to prosecuting any medical professional who attempts to use the Covid-19 crisis to defraud patients or insurers.”
The FBI and other law enforcement agencies are watching the country for any potential threats from people that would seek to cheat or fraud the American people. Anyone that is caught practicing illegal attempts to gain from the virus through fraud or fake cures will be caught. Mok and his values are not typical American values. He not only violated the trust and medical practice vows he took, but he also violated the principle of what it means to be an American citizen.
