Immediately in several cities of the Far East, the police arrested workers of the centers who allegedly provided medical services. According to the investigation, they stole more than 100 million rubles from residents of the Khabarovsk Territory and the Amur Region.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Khabarovsk Territory, the pseudo-medical institutions Ideal and EAC operated in Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Blagoveshchensk.

Employees of the centers called residents and invited them to a free examination of the whole organism. After the person agreed, he was "found" a whole bunch of diseases. According to the assurances of employees, only high-quality equipment of their centers could cure gullible citizens, most often pensioners.

According to investigators, the employees of the centers did not possess any medical knowledge. But the victims were given impressive bills for "medical" services. Moreover, the employees of the centers misled clients that part of the funds would be paid under the federal program, although the clients did not receive any state funding, as, in fact, treatment.

The cost of treatment averaged 150-350 thousand rubles. Since many of these funds were not available, fraudsters entered into loan agreements with victims. 11 managers and employees of the “medical centers” were on the dock, another 30 people were tested for involvement in the crime.
