ED Billing Company Employee Allegedly Steals Credit Card Information


A brother and sister were arrested Thursday, accused of robbing dozens of emergency room patients, KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reported.

According to the Seattle times, Lennie and Yvon Hennings stole tens of thousands of dollars by using patients' credit card information.

Authorities allege that Yvon used her job at Med Data, a Seattle company that provides billing services for emergency room doctors, to steal the information. She then passed the information to her brother Lennie, who used it to buy gift certificates online, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Yvon took more than 30 credit card numbers and other personal information from patients being billed for emergency room care at Stevens Hospital in Edmonds.
