BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Co-owner of multistate cleaning company charged with comp fraud

The co-owner of a Riverside, California-based multistate janitorial company is facing charges of defrauding five insurers of $2.7 million in a premium fraud scam, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

Patricia Morales, 46, of Riverside, is charged with seven counts of workers compensation premium fraud as well as an aggravated white collar crime enhancement. She co-owned Mac & Mor Cleaning Services, which had business contracts and employees in nine states, according to a statement from the district attorney’s office.

Ms. Morales was responsible for handling the workers compensation insurance policies for the company’s more than 100 employees. She is charged with defrauding the five insurers of $2.7 million during 2012-2017 by falsely underreporting the company’s payroll. She also is accused of forging state payroll records to match what she reported to insurers, according to the statement.

A court date has been set for June 5.
