February 18, 2022

Did a couple fraudulently cash in on the COVID-19 testing craze? Akbar Ali Syed and his wife Aleya Siyaj founded the Center for COVID Control in December 2020. In advertisements for the centers, they noted their testing was free, available Monday through Friday and no insurance was necessary. The company reportedly made over $140 million processing COVID-19 tests. Now, after mounting complaints and lawsuits alleging fraud, the company is under investigations. Lisa Guerrero caught up with the couple.
