A Florida couple has pleaded guilty to charges related to a worker’s compensation scam, according to the Department of Justice.
Guillermo Inamagua, 56, and Mayra Vlasquez, 34, have each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States.
According to the Justice Department, Inamagua and Velasquez each owned and managed a construction company that they had registered with the state of Florida. Inmagua’s company was called First Construction, while Velasquez’s was called Best Construction. Each company purported to supply construction services and a labor force to work for construction contractors. They were therefore required to secure and maintain adequate workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
