Company with $1.2 billion Obamacare contract under investigation for ‘serious fraud’
Daily Caller ^ | 09/30/2013

A British multinational being paid $1.2 billion to implement Obamacare’s federal insurance exchanges is under investigation after allegedly overcharging the British government by tens of millions of dollars.

Reuters reports that Britain’s Serious Fraud Office is now looking into Serco, a massive service and security firm employing 120,000 worldwide, after the company reportedly overbilled its government client as much as $80 million for criminal electronic monitoring devices.

Around one in six of the criminals listed were already in prison, had left the country, were not required to wear a device, or were even dead.

SSDD.

ObamaCARE will get around this, and make the
money back, simply by stopping to treat bacterial
pneumonia in all white adults older than 35
who are not in the Democratic party or sleeping with
a high level DNC politician.

I’ll probably be ontacted to work on this one. I expect we’ll probably be seeing several more episodes like this in the coming months. I’d expect a lot of brother-in-law contracts and large donations (i.e. kickbacks) to special PACs). Sometimes they use a large number of employees from a particular company making the maxinum donation possible to circumvent detection. I usually catch that though. That plus a lot of othe sleaze tactics.

Ridiculous accusations!

If government contractors didn’t overcharge they wouldn’t have money for kickbacks to government officials or to hire their worthless, do-nothing relatives and friends.

Britain’s Serious Fraud Office

Do they also have a "Not so Serious Fraud Office"?

And are they located near the Office of Funny Walks?

If you investigate deep enough you will find a lot of British owned or in British name only companies in the health care business.

British government contractors have had a head start on defrauding the government (about 40 years head start).

It only makes sense to hire the more experienced foreign fraudsters over the relatively inexperienced American fraudster companies.

Yes, and a Mediocre Fraud Office.

You have to have the proper systems in place.

Well they could become zombies. You need to keep the monitors on them to make sure they are not crawling out of the grave.

Well, at least they will be able to make sure the dead ones got out and voted...

(Not to mention getting advance warning of the Zombie Apocalypse!)
