FBI Raid Offices of The Scooter Store – Dr. Tar

Remember to commercials where the elderly customers claim “not a dime out of my pocket.” That’s because Medicare was paying for it.

Now it comes to light that “Last year, it was discovered that The Scooter Store received anywhere from $46.8 million to $87.7 million in Medicare overpayments from 2009 to 2011.”

Makes my blood boil.

    I told my wife years ago I thought they were a crooked outfit appealing to base human instinct and milking the government. No I see another outfit doing the same thing with back and knee braces.

    None of the people I ever see riding those things is nearly as attractive as the people in their commercials. Mostly they are extremely overweight individuals who look to be in their 40′s and 50′s who make me think of the animated film “Wall-E”

    Yup. Bastards. But I was just wondering… Between the scooter jerks and the doctors, do they ever explain to the patients that once you go in a “chair” you don’t ever walk again? Always with the fat folks, smoking a cigarette with 3 oxygen tanks strapped to the backs of them. I hardly ever see a skinny old lady / man using those! Only the people who are my age or 10 years older.

    I called this scam out 8 years ago, how much have they looted in that time period?

    Maybe in 10 tears they will discover the lawyers and their lazy clients scamming social security. I know its tough to find (they only advertise every 10 minutes on the boob tube).
