Florida's 'First Lady' of tax refund fraud gets 21 years in prison
The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 7/17/13 | Jessica Jerreat

A mother of three, who taunted authorities to catch her as she stole about $20 million from the IRS, has been jailed for 21 years.

Rashia Wilson, who pleaded guilty to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft earlier this year, admitted to stealing more than $3 million but the figure is believed to be much higher.

Tampa police were first alerted to the fraud in 2010 when they noticed a drop in drug dealing in the area.

IRS money lost to fraudulent returns likely gone for good

FTA:

Stolen identity refund fraud took off in Tampa as a street crime. The practice caught on in poor communities, evident when police started finding food stamp benefit cards commingled with hijacked refunds. Neighborhood drug dealers joined the scam. Court records allege that some claims were even filed on a government computer in a public housing complex by a woman then employed by the Tampa Housing Authority.

Just makes you so happy to pay your taxes. Just be happy that this incompetent government is not in charge of your health care.

look at that face and tell me you wouldn’t watch yourself around someone who looked at you like that.

they walk around the street with scowls and tough-guy grimaces and frowns and glares, and nobody is supposed to think that they’re serious, that they could potentially be a threat? the walk down the sidewalk 3-4 across and don’t give any room for people going the other way, like NORMAL people just instinctively do.

anyone looks at them ‘wrong’ and they’re in their faces saying they’ve been dissed and they need to respect them.

It took until the last sentence of the article before they explained what that meant.

Oh, no. Another one of those Eric Holder “Amish” brotha and sistas who embezzled $20 million in taxpayer money. Gee, who'd have thought it. And why was she allowed to get away with her fraud for as long as she did? Black privileged status brought to us by the corrupt U.S. government bureaucracy?

I don't get it. Steal over $20 million, maybe more, and all you have to pay back is 3 million?

I've actually never heard of a jail sentence of 21 years for this kind of thing.

Oftentimes people make jokes about how, gee, 3 years in the can, and I get to KEEP my stolen loot when I get out? Sign me up.

Might be worth it for a Global MF payday of 1.5 billion.

Corzine will "suffer" at some country club prison.

Twenty million wouldn’t cover one day of vacation for her president. She’s a lightweight.
