Ankeny Businessman Sentenced to 57 Months for Insurance Fraud

DES MOINES—Dinesh Sethi, owner of DES Staffing Services, was sentenced this morning to 57 months of imprisonment for his fraudulent scheme to avoid paying $778,940 in workers compensation premiums to Travelers and Liberty Mutual Insurance companies. Chief Judge James E. Gritzner also sentenced Sethi to a five-year term of supervised release, $778,940 in restitution and a $100 crime victim fund assessment.

Sethi directed the creation of two shell companies, Staffing Professionals and KDM Staffing, and transferred DES employees to those entities to avoid the larger workers compensation premiums DES owed as a result of its accident and claims history. In addition, Sethi directed his Chief Financial Officer, Randy Stringer, to shift payroll from job classifications which had a high premium rate to job classifications which had a lower premium rate, such as clerical.

This investigation began after Sethi reported the embezzlement of employee Randy Stringer to the FBI. Randy Stringer was prosecuted, sentenced, and has served his sentence of imprisonment but remains on supervised release. Stringer provided the FBI with documentation of the payroll shifting and the shell corporations.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the assistance of the Special Investigations Unit at Liberty Mutual. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  19. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  20. This excellent website is the major sites.

  21. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  23. Hi my friends, this website is fantastic. I will be back here

  25. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  28. Helpful information. Lucky me I discovered your site by accident, and I am stunned why this twist of fate did not took place in advance! I bookmarked it.

  29. Hello there, I’m first time on this page. It’s all about I’m interested. I’ll back here soon.

  30. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Situations like this can give the staffing industry a black eye. I represent LSI Staffing and our safety/work comp situation is one of our positive differentiators. Instead of defrauding insurance companies, we take on the risk ourselves by becoming a shareholder/member in a captive insurance company. If you are a DES client that is looking for a trustworthy partner email me at brent@lsistaffing.com.
