A federal grand jury returned an eight-count indictment against Orlando Gillam, 45, of Fresno, charging him with mail fraud for a scheme that defrauded insurance carriers, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

According to court documents, Gillam is the founder and CEO of Dunamis Inc. Group Home, a nonprofit that provided services that included alcohol and drug treatment and counseling.

Between January 2016 and January 2018, Gillam falsely billed insurers hundreds of thousands of dollars for alcohol and drug treatment and counseling, mental health treatment, and group and individual psychotherapy purportedly rendered to multiple individuals. Those individuals did not receive the services billed, and several were not Dunamis clients.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Office of Personnel Management Office of Inspector General. Assistant U.S. Attorney Vincente A. Tennerelli is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Gillam faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
