$25-million Star Trek-inspired medical device scam




Fraudster guilty in $25-million Star Trek-inspired medical device scam

Howard Leventhal of Illinois claimed to be a Canadian deputy health minister to get investments in a tablet that could instantaneously deliver patient information to doctors.


“In Leventhal’s world, the truth was cloaked by his web of lies and impersonation,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a news release. “His actions were the stuff of fantasy and science fiction, valid only in another dimension.”
Under his company’s name, Neovision USA Inc., Leventhal told prospective clients he had a large contract with Health Canada, according to the release.
Leventhal also gave clients a written agreement apparently signed by former Deputy Minister Glenda Yeates, who retired this August.
He created a fake cover website mimicking the actual Health Canada website and URL — healthcanada.com.co and hc-sg-gc.ca instead of hc-sc.gc.ca.
