Twelve employees of E-Meditek TPA services (a leading Third Party Services company of India) have allegedly conspired and defrauded the company. The suspects were successful in their motive and earned a profit of three crores in the fraud practice by tarnishing the image of the company.
While in the employment with E-Meditek Group they in parallels run their companies since early 2016 before getting exposed on 11th July, 2017. Their activities were suspected in the last week of June, 2017 and on investigation it was found that they had discretely shifted about 60 employees of the E-Meditek into their companies since April 2017and swindled the software business from the IT Company of the E-Meditek Group into their companies.
As per report, these employees used their official mail IDs to falsely inform the clients of E-Meditek Group company eiCORE Technologies for its software business that the new companies that they formed belongs to the E-Meditek Group only. On getting exposed on 11th July, 2017 other 10 remaining employees also resigned and immediately left the company same day without handing over company data and charge.

“There was complete trust in the company's employees but they fraudulently misappropriated crores and harmed the brand value of the company by giving false information to our customers,” said Gopal Verma, Chairman, E-Meditek Group Company. Verma also informed that the culprits were also running another office in the same building of their Mumbai branch and were misleading their clients.
The victim company claimed that the suspects have also manipulated company records to create fictitious medical claims to fund their business. In their attempt to give false impression to the company clients, they named their companies that are phonetically similar to “E-Meditek” as “eExpedise Technologies, eExpedise Healthcare and eExpedise Insurance Marketing” so as to give an impression that their companies belong to E-Meditek Group only. It is also discovered that they have collected more than 2 Crores by raising software service bills to the clients of eiCORE Technologies.
