According to WorldPoliticus:
From time to time, we see headlines fill up with stories about someone who has managed to bilk the government out of millions, It makes you wonder – how many are pulling such stunts off and not getting caught? The answer is more than we’d like to imagine.
This time, we’re not talking about business firms that cheat the legislature or those that give sub-par merchandise or neglect to convey administrations. We’re talking about deliberate endeavors at extortion by people who know how to be exceptionally inventive.
As per late reports, Anthony Gosha from Alabama stole the characters of detainees and utilized that data to record false government forms consequently securing $19 million from the feds. This is the thing that the report says:
“An Alabama man allegedly used stolen IDs from prisoners to file 7,000 tax returns with the IRS to obtain $19 million in fraudulent refunds. He also recruited U.S. Postal employees as part of the tax refund scheme. Anthony Gosha, also known as Boo Boo, and several co-conspirators were charged with conspiring to file fraudulent refund claims, mail and wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.”
Envision how much time you can spend rounding out 7,000 fake pay assessment forms. Unmistakably his normal pay check would have never brought him $19 million. The report proceeded:
“The scheme took place for during a three-year period between November 2010 and December 2013. Gosha and his co-conspirators directed the Internal Revenue Service to issue the refunds to prepaid debit cards, U.S. Treasury checks and financial institutions, the indictment stated. In addition, U.S. Postal Service employees were recruited to provide addresses on their mail routes so the fraudulent refund checks could be received.”
