Ringleader in Former NBA Players Fraud Scheme Revealed

NBA Fraud scheme ringleader revealed.

18 NBA veterans were named in the indictment, and all are facing a count of conspiracy to commit health care and wire fraud. The scheme allegedly involved the former players submitting fake reimbursement claims for exams and procedures that were never actually done. The indictment alleges that they took in around $2.5 million from a total of nearly $4 million in fake claims.

These are the names reportedly in the indictment, which was unsealed Thursday:

Terrence Williams, the 11th overall pick in the 2009 draft, was allegedly the ringleader:

Via NBC New York:

“Williams allegedly orchestrated the years-long scheme and recruited other NBA health plan participants to assist by offering them fake invoices to support their allegedly false health plan claims. He is accused of receiving kickback payments totaling at least $23,000 in return for providing the alleged false documentation.

The 34-year-old Williams also allegedly helped three co-defendants — Ronald Glen Davis, Charles Watson Jr. and Antoine Wright — obtain fake letters of medical necessity to justify some of the services on which the false invoices were based.

Williams also allegedly impersonated an individual who processed plan claims at one point in furtherance of his alleged scheme.”

Williams allegedly got $230K in kickbacks..

He’s screwed.
