Five in W.Va., Ky. charged in tax fraud scheme

Former workers' comp inspector for BrickStreet, four coal company contractors named by U.S. Attorney



“BrickStreet has been informed that it is one of the victims of a crime committed by a former employee working with a very small number of our policyholders, nearly all of which were owned or controlled by one family in Southern West Virginia.  BrickStreet has been fully cooperating with and assisting the authorities in this investigation since we were first informed of it in August 2012.  No BrickStreet policyholder lost money because of this crime.  We are thankful to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin and his office for the plea agreements that have been secured to date.  We will continue to cooperate and support the prosecution of any individuals or companies who may be found to be involved with this incident to the fullest extent of the law.  We are committed to fighting fraudulent activity that may impact our policyholders and we will take this same aggressive approach any time fraud is committed against BrickStreet.”
