Crackdown of Tax Refunds & Identity Theft Criminals

The US Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Services have launched a crackdown of Identity Theft Scammers. Particularly, this action was meant to protect taxpayers who will become victims of Tax Refund Frauds and Identity Theft during this tax season.

“The Justice Department is working closely with the IRS to investigate, prosecute, and punish tax refund crimes committed through the theft of identities,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General John A. DiCicco of the Tax Division. “Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant against the unauthorized use of identification information to defraud the U.S. government.”

"The coast-to-coast effort took place over the last week and included indictments, arrests and the execution of search warrants involving the potential theft of thousands of identities and taxpayer refunds. In all, 939 criminal charges are included in the 69 indictments and informations related to identity theft."

“This unprecedented effort against identity theft sends a strong, unmistakable message to anyone considering participating in a refund fraud scheme this tax season,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman.

These actions are great efforts by both government offices.  Every action like this will reinforce faith, and confidence of the people to the government who will stand by to protect the vulnerable citizens of the United States.

Great Job!
