Now if only we knew how to use this type of intelligence legally we’d be in a better place!
25yr old Krystal Reyes “
almost got away with it” when she filed her income tax this year via turbo tax, claiming 3million in earnings. Her request for a $2.1 million refund was initially red-flagged by an automated system, but a subsequent manual review by Oregon revenue department workers OK’d the refund. Turbo Tax then loaded the full amount onto a debit card for Reyes.
Acoording to msnbc,
Authorities say she spent $150,000 of the funds before reporting the card lost or stolen, at which point the ruse was discovered. The state has recovered roughly $1.9 million of the funds.
Reyes was arrested June 6, and now faces eight felony charges. In addition to tax evasion and theft charges, she is accused of computer crime and methamphetamine possession. She is scheduled to be arraigned on July 5.
