So they got caught because they are morons who did fraud.According to the court documents, several of the fake invoices and medical necessity forms stood out because, “they are not on letterhead, they contain unusual formatting, they have grammatical errors” and were sent on the same dates from different offices.

Watch ESPN's 30 for 30 episode "Broke" and it will answer your question.The whole scenario begs the question of why in the world people who at some point made more money than many of us in a lifetime of work felt the need to bilk their plan, and by extension, their fellow players, out of piles of money. Has the NBA or its Players Association commented on this yet?
