Alpha Mar, a Houston-based company, is guilty of committing workers’ compensation premium fraud and has been ordered by a Travis County District Court to pay $250,000.00 in restitution to Texas Mutual Insurance Company.  Alpha Mar entered a plea of guilty to defrauding its workers’ compensation carrier by concealing payroll and falsifying the number of employees in an attempt to secure lower workers’ compensation premiums, which are calculated, in part, on an employer’s payroll. The scam succeeded for four years. The Division’s fraud unit in the Travis County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.
