Fake tax refunds land cagey crook Charlene Hughs of Waynesboro in jail


Defauding the IRS can land tax
 cheats in lock up!

A few cagey crooks have figured out how to get the best of Uncle Sam - File false tax returns! The scam is worked by filing fake social security numbers and using false W-2 forms. If they get it right they get a check in the mail. Perhaps a fool will hit the jack pot for awhile, but the government will eventually figure out the Joe Smith on the tax return does no match any of the thousands of Joe Smiths on file and start investigating. That is when the crooks need to think about how cagey crooks get caged.
"She got her dough fast, the government got their information pretty fast, too"
Charlene Hughes of Waynesboro, Georgia, was one of those cagey crooks. According to allegations, she popped the IRS for $90,000 applying for refunds using false W-2 information. She got the dough fast, mostly over a one year period from April of 2006 to April of 2007. Considering how long she may have to contemplate her choice of patsies, the government got their information pretty fast, too.

Charlene is charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 286. Edward J. Tarver, US Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia announced the grand jury indictment.

Tarver said, “As we near the height of this year's tax filing season, those who might consider preparing false tax returns should be aware of the severe consequences of doing so. This indictment emphasizes that the IRS, the FBI and the United States Attorney's Office will aggressively pursue anyone who attempts to defraud America's tax system.”
"Cheat the IRS and they will make room
for you in one of those 4X6 cells"

Being a crook does not pay lasting dividends. That is one of the reasons why we have increasing inmate populations. Even with over-crowding in jails you can bet one thing: Cheat the IRS and they will make room for you in one of those 4X6 cells.

Charlene is out on $10,000 bond which was set by U.S. Magistrate Judge W. Leon Barfield. He further stated the defendant would be released from custody once she deposited with the Court 10 percent of her $10,000 bond.

If you know about someone who is trying to defraud the US Government using tax tricks, the government would love to hear about it.  The tax whistleblower program may even pay you a reward.

The government wants you to know the indictment is only an allegation. Unless Ms. Charlene Hughes is judged guilty of conspiracy to defraud the United States in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 286, or makes a plea bargain, she has the right to be presumed innocent.
