Michigan Resident Sentenced for Fraud

On November 4, 2013, in Detroit, Michigan, Jason Syrek, of Adrian, Michigan, was sentenced to 72 months in prison and ordered to pay $17,659,561 in restitution for healthcare fraud and filing false tax returns. According to court documents, from May 2008 to December 2010, Syrek operated a human resource company, CAS Resources of Adrian, Michigan. CAS Resources provided outsourcing of human resource services, such as payroll, taxes and employee benefits administration, including health care coverage. CAS collected $1.75 million in premiums from client companies in November and December 2010, but never paid the premiums to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Syrek, as the Director of CAS Resources, filed a form with the IRS stating that CAS Resources paid $1,862,902 in payroll taxes. Syrek knew he had diverted these funds for his own personal use and only paid $633,332 in payroll taxes. In addition to this form for the third quarter of 2010, Syrek filed seven other forms with the IRS reporting payroll taxes that he did not pay. In total, from 2010 through 2011, Syrek’s tax due was $13.4 million. He admitted diverting these funds for personal use to buy beach front properties, several cars, a boat and investment properties.
