RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - The company whose daytime commercials you may see every day was raided by the FBI Wednesday.

State and Federal agents raided the corporate headquarters in Texas yesterday as part of a probe into possible Medicare fraud.

The FBI is looking into whether the store pressured doctors to recommend motorized scooters or was overcharging for them.

This was part of the trouble the company is going through, earlier this month they eliminated 150 positions nationwide.
