Posted on 07/04/2012 9:14:30 PM PDT by MrChips
Identity theft fraud caught by the IRS has skyrocketed since 2008, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released this week.
n 2010, the GAO said the IRS found 245,000 cases of identity fraud cases in which Social Security numbers of others were used to either falsely try to collect a refund or to get work and avoid taxes. That is up from fewer than 52,000 cases in 2008.
A particularly scary part of the crime is that the victims have no way to protect themselves.
The incidence of tax-related identity fraud is indeed staggering, said Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy for Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. The number of reported cases significantly undercounts the actual numbers because there tends to be a significant delay in detecting most cases of tax-related identity fraud. (more . . . .)
thats a huge crime increase.
Yep, and I am one of the victims. I am trying to find a more recent article.
