Description: Des Moines, Iowa mail fraud charge criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant, Jeffrey Scott Dworek, age 55, formerly from the Des Moines area, was charged with fraudulently stealing $1.6 million from the Metro Waste Authority (MWA).
Jeff Dworek served as the Director of Operations at MWA. Over the course of nearly five years, Dworek stole money from MWA. Dworek created a front company, Britad – incorporated by Dworek in South Dakota – and proceeded to fraudulently bill MWA for services Britad never provided. In addition to setting up one front company, Dworek was also aware that two other MWA “vendors,” Lamar Programming Company and International Telemetry Technologies, also submitted false invoices to MWA and Dworek approved those invoices, knowing they were not legitimate. In addition to approving the fake invoices, Dworek also received payment from these companies, presumably as a kickback for Dworek’s role in the scheme.
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Iowa State Auditor’s Office. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
