Burying The Lead


DM- A woman who was given a $2.1million tax refund after filing a false claim went on a massive spending spree until she was caught. Krystle Marie Reyes was only caught after she reported the Visa card containing the seven figure sum had been lost. By that time she had already spent more than $150,000, including buying a car and other household items. The 25-year-old from Salem, Oregon, had used Turbo Tax to file her income tax return for 2011.She claimed earnings of $3 million but used the tax calculator programme to claim a refund of $2.1 million, Oregon Live reported. Incredibly, they approved the payout and Reyes was sent a visa card by the tax preparation computer programme containing a balance of $2.1 million. She later reported the card missing, prompting an investigation which uncovered the massive fraud which is believed to be the biggest in the history of the state of Oregon.


Yeah, everyone is up in arms about this gal trying to rip off the State of Oregon, but you know what I think the most amazing part of the story is? She had a Visa card with a $2.1 million balance on it. That's possible?

WOW Oregon should have kept this on the hush hush. The state, as well as, the IRS look like a bunch of incompetent goofs.

The amazing part is that she was smart enough to pull this off, but dumb enough to report the card as lost. She should have considered herself lucky to have what she had already stolen, and kept her mouth shut.
It would be interesting to see how much she actually made, and how much she would have gotten refunded legally
