open sores when investigators found her
body. Her diaper wasn’t changed. Norman’s sentence — 10 years in state prison.
David Nicoll ran a blood lab that launched
a $100-million Medicare bribery scandal
that took down 26 corrupt doctors. It was
the largest takedown of doctors for insurance graft in U.S. history.
The Parsippany, N.J., man ran
Biodiagnostics Laboratory Services. He greased
doctors’ palms to send him patients for
worthless blood testing then overbilled
Nicoll slipped doctors $4 million in
kickbacks — $1,500 to $5,000 per month,
plus expensive meals, and tickets to concerts and other events.
Nicoll spent millions on rare collectible
cars. His large stable included $580,000
for a Chevy muscle car and $300,000 for a
Ferrari. He chartered private jets and blew
through more than $700,000 on a Manhat-
tan apartment for his “female companion.”
His corporation, Biodiagnostics, pleaded guilty in June 2016.
MURDER FOR HIRE
Joshua West fought to his final gasping
breath. Hitmen hired by Hovanes Maskovian needed a tire iron, knife, teeth, car
and gun to kill his ex-boyfriend for $2.5
million of life-insurance money.
Maskovian was the policy beneficiary.
The Los Angeles-area couple broke up
after seven years together, the policy still
intact. Maskovian enlisted brother Ha-
chik and a sidekick to murder West.
They lured him to a remote desert location and attacked. West was beaten
and bitten, run over by a car, shot in his
heart and his throat slashed. Maskovian
received life without parole.
The fraudster voter bloc is whiner-take-all balloting, and stealth is their path
to wealth. Yet investigators continually
improve their own tactics. More powerful analytics, multi-agency task forces
and proven street instincts apply growing
pressure with each passing year.
Turning the corner still may require
full buy-in of the most-important voting
body of them all, however, the court of
Dennis Jay (dennisjay@insurancefraud.
