Money-Man Behind Ground Zero Mosque Sued for Running Massive Insurance Scam

He had a "highly developed and sophisticated kickback scheme."

The scrutiny may be getting even more intense for the key investor behind the Ground Zero mosque. According The New York Post, Allstate Insurance has filed a federal suit in Long Island against the Ground Zero mosque's self-proclaimed benefactor, Hisham Elzanaty, for allegedly running a "highly developed and sophisticated kickback scheme" for years. Elzanaty reportedly swindled some $5.1 million through false car-accident injury claims.

The Post reports:

The scheme routinely submitted inflated medical bills to Allstate and involved illegal fee-splitting, court papers say.

Allstate claimed that Elzanaty fraudulently incorporated medical professional corporations in The Bronx -- which were then used to bill the company for care of patients involved in wrecks.

The operations were fraudulent because Elzanaty is not a licensed medical professional, as required by law, court papers say.

According to the Post, Elzanaty did not return requests for comment.
