Texas Mutual Announces Premium Fraud Indictments

Austin, TX (CompNewsNetwork) - Texas Mutual Insurance Company announced today that a Travis County grand jury indicted Trans X Corp of Arlington and its owner-president, Cheryl Ann Bussey of Mansfield, Texas on workers' compensation fraud-related charges.

Trans X Corp provided temporary drivers to other companies. Texas Mutual alleges that between February 24, 2005 and November 6, 2005, Bussey intentionally gave Texas Mutual false information about her workforce in her applications for coverage and provided incomplete payroll records. 

Because workers' compensation insurance premium is based, in part, on payroll, this type of scheme results in an employer being charged a lower premium than it actually owes. By hiding payroll, an employer can gain an unfair advantage over competitors. 

Note: A grand jury indictment is a formal accusation – not a conviction – of criminal conduct.
