Earlier this week, the Justice Department initiated legal actions against 21 people around the country who were operating a variety of Coronavirus related scams, many of which I have warned you about for the last two years.   Some of the scams involved the sale of phony vaccination cards, selling fake test results and luring people into taking unnecessary tests and telehealth visits.  One of the biggest accused scammers was a New York cardiologist who billed Medicare and Medicaid for 1.3 million dollars of unnecessary tests and even tests that were not even performed.
