When Dana Wilkey appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she didn’t shy away from letting everyone know she spent $25,000 on sunglasses. But according to a new report, Wilkey has been indicted on several fraud charges!
RealityTea reports that this June, Wilkey was charged with six counts of wire fraud, aiding and abetting and one count wire fraud conspiracy in connection to a fraudulent Blue Shield health insurance kickback scheme.
The Irish Times reports that Dana and two other Blue Shield employees, Skylar and Lissa Phoenix, entered into a â€œfraudulent marketing contractâ€ between Blue Shield and Adwil Agency, which â€œincluded the regular payment of undisclosed kickbacks from Dana to Skylar Phoenix, Lissa Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink, a shell corporation held by and for the benefit of Skylar Phoenix.â€
The indictment states that â€œbetween in or about February 2006 through at least February 2012, Dana Wilkey, through Adwil Agency accounts, paid directly to Lissa Phoenix, Skylar Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink, approximately 87 checks totalling approximately $360,000 in illegal and undisclosed kickbacks related to Adwil Agencyâ€™s business with Blue Shield.â€
US attorney Melinda Haag and FBI special agent David Johnson state that Dana was part of an alleged â€œconspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and aiding and abetting, and false statements to government agents.â€
Wilkey has been charged with one count of â€œwire fraud conspiracyâ€, and six counts of â€œwire fraud, aiding and abetting.â€
