Texas Mutual Announces Three Fraud Indictments

                               Austin, TX (CompNewsNetwork) - Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported today that a Travis County grand jury indicted three claimants, in separate cases, on workers' compensation fraud-related charges.  The claimants allegedly collected a combined $7,443 in benefits they were not entitled to.

The indicted claimants are Janet Fanning of Kirbyville, $2,843; Sergio Garcia of El Paso, $2,935; and Margarito Robles of San Antonio, $1,665.  

All three cases involved a scam that investigators call double-dipping.  Double-dipping occurs when claimants collect benefits for being too injured to work when they are, in fact, gainfully employed.  State law requires injured workers to notify their insurance carrier when they return to work. 

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