TORONTO -- A pair of Toronto rehabilitation clinics and four people face a total of 84 charges for allegedly filing bogus invoices with auto insurers.
The Financial Services Commission of Ontario, which polices the insurance sector, alleges the clinics conjured up false statements to obtain payments made to claimants.
The Fairview Assessment Centre and the Pacific Assessment Centre face seven counts each of knowingly making false or misleading statements to an auto insurer and of engaging in an unfair or deceptive act or practice.
Four people who the commission says are affiliated with the clinics each face seven counts of the two offences.
Charged are Danny Grossi, Alexandre Lobatch, Yaniv Tamsout, Vitali Tourkov.
