Top Florida Workers' Comp Insurers

At an Aug. 2 Cabinet meeting, Florida CFO Jeff Atwater announced the creation of a working group to review the practices of some in the check cashing services industry involved in workers’ compensation premium fraud.

According to Atwater, organized criminal enterprises set up shell or fake companies and obtain a minimal workers’ compensation insurance policy. Uninsured contractors pay a fee to use the shell policy and then present a copy of the shell certificate of insurance to a general contractor.

The schemers use money service businesses to cash the checks made out to the shell company.
