Project Whiplash, 37 people charged



It's odd that these guys alll have weird names just like the scammer in the "reversed my car on the 401" video!


Toronto Police Service
News Release

Project Whiplash, 37 people charged

Thursday, February 23, 2012 - 3:38 PM
Traffic Services
416-808-1900

In 2009, the Toronto Police Service Traffic Services Unit and the Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes Unit, assisted by members of the Insurance Bureau of Canada and Financial Services Commission of Ontario, identified 10 key people and 35 others who allegedly played a role in a series of fraudulently staged collisions and insurance claims during Project Whiplash.

“IBC applauds Toronto Police Service for their commitment to this case,” said Rick Dubin, VP, Investigations, Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC). “Overall, it was an excellent co-operative effort involving police, IBC, individual insurers and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario. Insurance fraud is a serious crime that costs all of us in the form of health care, emergency services, court and insurance costs. When they cheat, we all pay.”

It is alleged that:

- a number of billing inaccuracies made to State Farm Insurance from various physiotherapy clinics in Toronto were discovered

- eight local physiotherapy clinics have been identified and are owned and operated by the accused

- billing forms included names and registration numbers, fraudulently obtained, of several medical professionals who were not employed by the clinics and who had resigned from the clinics or, if they were employed, did not provide treatment the named patients

It is further alleged that:

- numerous staged motor vehicle collisions were executed and some submitted cases did not occur

- in some cases, previously damaged vehicles were made to appear as if they had been involved in a new collision

- police investigations were started, reports would be generated, and the parties involved would later claim to be injured and seek the assistance of the identified paralegals who would file all the required paperwork with the insurance company

- in some cases, the accused permitted their names to be used on the collision form and used by the clinics and paralegals, when they were not involved in any collision, staged or fabricated

- the insurance claims sought benefits for recovering costs associated with auto repairs, physiotherapy and chiropractic rehabilitation, home care, transportation, and income-replacement, whether the people were employed or not, amongst other miscellaneous expenditures

Charged are:

serious? you misinterpreted what I said, son.

I am referring to calling out the similarity in those names and if you think it isn't coincidence by doing as I just said, than you're racist. It is reflective of this politically correct bullshit society we dwell in.

no worries, i'm on your side :p

Half the reason why our socal systems are being eroded in this country is because we practically have an open door policy for immagrants during good times. Its no wonder we end up with so many cuts and cost hikes. The system is not ment to support the blood sucking low lives of the world.
