When the feds started scrutinizing two men accused of running a massive $23 million auto insurance fraud at chiropractic clinics in South Florida, their defense attorneys say investigators had a theory the ringleaders were part of the Russian mob. The two men, arrested this month, had much in common — they emigrated from Ukraine and became U.S. citizens more than 20 years ago, settling into South Florida’s Orthodox Jewish community. Felix Filenger was the flashy one who drove a Bentley, bought a $64,000 watch and carried a black suitcase stuffed with cash he doled out as kickbacks, according to the feds.
