Skip to comments.Tax Refund Fraud Victims Getting Left Behind (Still waiting for 2011 Refunds)

Identity theft, tax refund scams are really no less than a tsunami that is barreling towards us, said U.S. attorney Wifredo Ferre... For victims like South Dades Lauri King, waiting for help from the Internal Revenue Service is getting harder. She still doesnt know when the agency may get around to mailing out her refund... King filed her tax refund seven months ago. She expected to get her refund a few months later, but continues to wait for the IRS to finally act... Just two weeks ago, I mentioned to my husband, did we ever get our IRS refund and he said, No, King said. So we called and actually got to talk with a person and she informed us that we had an issue with identity theft. ... Over 74,000 potentially fraudulent returns filed in Miami resulting in $280 million in bogus returns in 2010, Ferre said. The city of Miami per capita numbers of fraudulent returns based on id theft was 46 times the national average
this is absolutely outrageous.
Ah Miami, the king of medicaire fraud and the only county exempt from the Fl voter poll purge. D-rat mayor for what, the past 50 yrs. 5th in crime for the nation or something like that?
Don’t go there. Unless you absolutely have to.
File early if you have a return coming, don't wait until May.
Recheck please, 10 - 7 = 3, which indicates to me that they filed in March of this year.
You may need more caffeine in your bloodstream. [ smile]
Can you even IMAGINE the lunacy I'd have come up with if I had that caffreine at that hour?!?!?!
