FFS is pleased to welcome Terry Schell to our new Houston, TX office!

We are thrilled to have Terry Schell join us in the key position as Director of Business Development for Financial Forensic Services, LLC, said Joe H. Dickerson, CFE, CFI, Chief Executive Officer of the Colorado based forensic research and consulting judgment enforcement firm. With over 60 years of relevant experience, Terry brings exceptional expertise and wisdom which will make a direct contribution to the firm’s continued domestic and international growth.

Terry was then brought to Tulsa, OK to manage the new Four Theatre and Arts Complex where he quickly became known as a true gentleman with unequaled tenacity and professionalism. He was known for the outstanding success of the heavy scheduled local and touring productions of Broadway shows, orchestras and dance performances.

In 1981, he then became President of Ticketmaster in Houston, the largest computerized ticketing operation in the World. There he was bonded for $35,000,000.00 annually, covering the amount of ticket sales for which he was chiefly responsible.

Terry then learned and quickly mastered new IRS regulations concerning Cost Segregation, allowing him to move into the private sector where he consulted with commercial building owner clients across the USA, saving them hundreds of millions of dollars in tax liabilities.

Mr. Schell retired from the corporate world in 2008 and has operated his own real estate investment projects for nearly 40 years, investing in real estate. He is also working in the Secondary Market of the Financial Industry by Brokering Promissory Notes backed by real estate in the single family, commercial and raw land niches all over the U.S.A.

Married to Diane for 52 years, they have a son and four grandchildren. Both Terry and Diane are active in their respective careers and have no intention of slowing down any time soon.

My wife Barbara Dickerson, CFO and our entire staff at Financial Forensic Services, LLC join me in welcoming Terry to our business family. We all look forward to working with him in the coming years to better serve all of our current and future clients.

HOME HEALTH CARE SCHEMES

By: Joe Dickerson, CFE, CFI

A former director of nursing pleaded guilty in connection with a health care fraud scheme involving Anna Nursing Services Corp., a defunct home health care company in Miami.

Armando Buchillon, 42, of Hialeah, Florida, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joan A. Lenard in the Southern District of Florida to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud.

According to court documents, Buchillon was a director of nursing  at Anna  Nursing,  a  Miami home health care agency that purported to provide home health and therapy services to Medicare beneficiaries. The owners and operators of Anna Nursing agreed to and actually did operate Anna Nursing for the purpose of billing the Medicare Program for, among other things, expensive physical therapy and home health care services that were not medically necessary and/or were not provided.

Anna Nursing was paid approximately $7 million by Medicare for this fraudulent scheme that lasted about 20 months.

Over the past seven years, approximately 1,900 defendants have been charged with fraudulently billing Medicare over $6 billion.

Our tax money at work!

WE NEED EACH OTHER

Next time you take a walk in the woods stop and think about what is taking place right under your feet. As the roots of the trees connect with each other they form a support system. One has access to water, another to nutrients, and another to sunlight. No single tree has it all, but together they can grow, thrive, and withstand the storms of life. Then they will grow in every way. As we grow and become strong because of love, some of us independent types have difficulty with this concept. We want to fly solo until we crash, and then we realize our need for: (1) Encouragement. Even Paul needed cheering on: “Everyone in Asia has turned against me, especially Phygelus and Hermogenes. I pray that the Lord will be kind to the family of Onesiphorus. He often cheered me up and wasn’t ashamed of me when I was put in jail. Then after he arrived in Rome, he searched everywhere until he found me.” (2) Sympathy. “Be sympathetic. We all need to be understood and have our feelings validated. But sometimes we are in such a hurry to “fix” people we don’t have time to sympathize with them.” (3) Grace. “Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. What motivates us to extend grace to others? God’s grace to us! Remember, you will never be asked to extend more grace to someone than God has already extended to you.”

” I was prepared to dismiss a federal case involving millions of dollars against a local individual who claimed to have no substantial assets. After your staff hit the records and delved into the transactions behind the transactions, you discovered the individual to actually be worth a few million dollars. We continued the case to conclusion. We were also very happy with the financial background examinations you conducted of the former directors of two failed national banks. The heart of any civil case is whether there is a pot at the end of the lawsuit. You were our lucky leprechaun in finding such pots.”

“When I was general counsel for First Interstate Bank, I used Joe Dickerson for locating assets, investigating behavior and asset discovery. He did excellent work and always got the information I needed without compromising the bank in any way. He’s more thorough and kept in better touch with me than other investigators. I’d give him a grade of 96 or 97 out of 100.”

“As an environmental law firm, we use Joe Dickerson to locate prior business owners and do corporate genealogies. He is persistent, that’s the key to a good investigator, and he has a knack for understanding how people move money and do business. That tells him what rocks to look under. Joe is vastly superior to other investigators in two ways: he lets you know what’s going on and he’s honest with you, because he tells you if there’s really anything there worth pursuing. He is unusually thorough and creative finding people. Joe has earned his fee every time.” “If the information is to be found, then I believe that they will find it. Their service enabled me to do a much better job for my client.”
