Woman Receives 2.1 Million Through Tax Fraud
Earlier this year, a 25 year old woman who works for TurboTax lied by claiming 3 million in income on her state taxes. This gave her a 2.1 million dollar refund. Amazingly, no one in the government caught this slip until she decided to lie AGAIN and say that her pre-paid debit card was stolen and asked for a NEW one. The woman, named Krystle Marie Reyes managed to spend around 150,000$ before being arrested for fraud.
Here is Krytle's mug shot from the department of justice :
What is incredible is that she was able to pull this fraud past so many people without getting caught. Multiple people had to approve this from the Oregon Department of Revenue. The story originally appeared in an Oregon newspaper .
