The first verdict in the case of pseudo-medical centers was passed in Khabarovsk. The manager of the organization received a suspended sentence. 

According to the press service of the prosecutor's office of the Khabarovsk Territory, she acted as part of an organized group. The court found that from 2016 to 2018, a pseudo-medical center worked in Khabarovsk, where people were convinced that they were seriously ill and took money for emergency treatment.

The role of the defendant was to fulfill the duties of a sales manager. She carried out the initial appointment of patients, conducting diagnostics using the multiscan household device. The woman attributed non-existent diseases to the applicants and sent them to the center for treatment, where they concluded service agreements and issued loans to pay for treatment. The fraudster took part in 37 such crimes.

For the theft of another's property by deception on an especially large scale, committed as part of an organized group, she was sentenced to three years in prison with a probationary period of three years. All funds spent were returned to the victims.

In March of this year, the police arrested employees of the centers in several cities of the Far East at once, who allegedly provided medical services. According to the investigation, they stole from residents of the Khabarovsk Territory and the Amur Region more 100 million rubles.
