He worked two jobs and earned a decent living. But that wasn’t enough for a Monsey man the D.A. says committed Medicaid fraud.
Forty-six-year-old Eliyahu Zarifa was arrested Friday and charged with felony third-degree grand larceny.
Zarifa worked at B&H Photo Company and Top Notch Staffing, but didn't tell that to Rockland County’s Department of Social Services when he asked for aid.
Zarifa allegedly received $4,018 in illegal Medicaid benefits.
But this isn’t the only crime Zarifa is currently charged with, Newsday reported. He’s also charged with felony predatory sexual assault against a child.
Zarifa was arrested for that in August of 2011 on a 90-count indictment.
His attorney is, not surprisingly, Kenneth Gribetz.
