A dermatologist in the Bridgeport area is in some legal trouble after he supposedly came up with a scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid.

Dr. Allen Saoud, 58, has been charged with 23 felonies including health care fraud, making and subscribing false tax returns, obstruction of the Administration of Internal Revenue Laws, falsification of a bankruptcy document, false statement to a federal agent & bankruptcy fraud.
A spokesperson for the Department of Justice said cases like this are a high priority for the federal government, especially since this one involved stealing money from taxpayer funded programs. The feds are also trying to win a money judgment against Saoud. If they succeed, he'll have to pay $850,000.
