West Virginia MD’s Scams Come to an Abrupt Halt

Dr Allen Saoud

Dr Allen Saoud: Why is this man smiling?

Harrison County physician Doctor Allen G. Saoud will spend the next 8 years in federal prison as the result of the widespread crimes he was responsible for.

Saoud, age 60 of Clarksburg, was convicted in June of last year of Healthcare Fraud; Identity Theft; Obstructing an IRS investigation; Bankruptcy Fraud; and making false statements to investigators – 22 felony counts in all.

U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley ordered Saoud to pay $2,500,000 in fines. He will also forfeit more than $1,000,000.

The prosecution was able to prove that Saoud had schemed to get around his exclusion from the Medicare insurance program. It also found that he lied to federal agents about his practice and lied again under oath.

Saoud began serving his prison term in May.

Our Observations:

Before his life of crime Saoud MD graduated from Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1983.

He will not be attending his alumni party in August.
