Employment agency owner charged with fraud

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A Des Moines employment agency owner has been indicted on federal fraud charges. 

Dan Sethi, of Ankeny, is accused of scheming to defraud insurance companies out of workers' compensation premiums.  He owns DES Staffing Services in Des Moines.  Prosecutors say he created two other companies he represented as being separate from DES Services and transferred the majority of his employees to those other companies to avoid rising workers' compensation premiums. 

He could face up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
