Genetic Testing Scam Preys on Seniors’ Cancer Fears and May Be Costing Taxpayers Millions

September 13, 2019

(CBS News) – Genexe is part of an explosion of marketing companies hiring local recruiters to go anywhere seniors hang out. The cancer test may be the hook, but the real goal is to collect as many Medicare numbers as possible. CBS News found one woman who was convicted in 2017 of a half a million dollar securities fraud pitching cancer tests in Youngstown, Ohio, for another company similar to Genexe. She was still on probation at the time.
