Oxnard Man Sentenced for Committing Workers’ Compensation Insurance Premium Fraud

VENTURA, California – District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced today that Victor Vega (DOB 8/1/1965) of Oxnard, the owner of Vega Cleaning Service, was sentenced to serve 365 days in Ventura County jail for committing workers’ compensation insurance fraud. On April 5, 2018, Vega pled guilty to four felony counts of violating Insurance Code section 11760(a).  The case was the result of an investigation by the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation.

Between January 2010 and December 2015, Vega, while operating his cleaning service business, underreported both the total number of his employees and his actual payroll to his workers’ compensation insurance carriers, causing a loss to the insurance carriers of unpaid premiums. The court placed Vega on probation for a period of 72 months and ordered him to pay restitution to four insurance companies totaling $460,197, with the final amount to be determined at a future court hearing.  Vega made a payment of $100,000 toward restitution at his sentencing hearing.
