Kansas Farmer Grows Bankruptcy Fraud Scheme

Wichita Kansas prosecutors say they plan to seek more than $2.1 million in restitution from a Kansas farmer who pled guilty to crop insurance and bankruptcy fraud, reported AP News.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Kevin Struss, of rural WaKeeney, Kansas, entered the guilty plea in federal court. Struss admitted that he created a scheme to fraudulently collect crop insurance benefits by underreporting his corn production. The crop insurance fraud charge stems from false reports in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Struss also admitted he lied about transferring $470,000 to someone three months prior to filing for bankruptcy in April 2018. If you are considering bankruptcy, contact our law office at 816-524-4949 or visit our website at Hoorfarlaw.com.
