A Ghanaian-American surgeon based in Florida, Dr. Moses deGraft-Johnson has been fingered in a serious fraud case in the United States of America.

According to a court in the US where Dr. Moses is standing trial, he is said to have illegally stolen an amount of over $26 million dollars of United States government and medical insurers.

Narrating how it all happened in a 58-count indictment by a federal court, it was revealed that Dr deGraft-Johnson is alleged to have falsified records in order to receive money from medical insurers such as Medicare and Medicaid for surgeries and medical procedures that he did not perform.

It continued that he used to money to establish himself in Ghana so he could stand for the next upcoming election for a yet-to-be-identified political party.

Dr deGraft-Johnson is rumored to have bought some expensive and lavish cars such as two Mercedes, and the latest models of Ferraris and a Lamborghinis.

A wealthy deGraft-Johnson owned five sprawling residences in five different cities in the United States of America, spending time in each residence as and when he wished.

Investigators also found bundles of cash both in his hospital and in some of his residences even as investigations continue.

The US government says that there is evidence that Dr deGraft-Johnson was “hard at work using the proceeds of fraud in the United States to establish an empire in a foreign country.”

But attorney William Bubsey who represented Dr deGraft-Johnson argued that the surgeon is a kindhearted individual who was extremely helpful to others, insisting that the money wired home must have been meant to help impoverished Ghanaians.
