Federal agents have seized nearly $6.8 million from bank accounts held by Cleveland, Tenn., Dr. Raymond Sean Brown as part of Medicare fraud allegations.
Court documents show that at the request of Assistant U.S. Attorney Anne-Marie Svolto in the Knoxville office, agents made two seizures at the following locations.
• From the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union account of Brown — $186,091.84
• From the Athens Federal Community Bank account of Brown — $6,579,517.08
In court documents Svolto alleges that Brown has committed mail fraud, wire fraud, health care fraud and money laundering.
There is no court date listed with Brown’s name on the federal court calendar for the eastern district.
The case has been filed as a civil lawsuit.
Staff at Brown’s Cleveland office deferred comment to his lawyer Jerry Summers who could not be reached immediately.
