Georgia: Immigrant fraudsters file phoney tax return in Eric Holder’s name

Diversity is beautiful alert!

They look to be Ethiopians, possibly refugees (or children of refugees) since we resettle so many Ethiopians.  In fact, one of the nine major federal contractors is the Ethiopian Community Development Council.  So, only their resettlement contractor knows for sure if this pair of dim bulbs is here gratis the US taxpayer!

Yafait Tadesse

From the UK Daily Mail  (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’).  The story was from last week while I was away:

The crime of identity theft has become so rampant in the Internet age that not even the top law enforcement official in the land is safe.

Federal prosecutors say 21-year-old Yafait Tadesse of Carrollton, Georgia, has been sentenced for using the identities of more than 10 people — including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder — in an identity theft and tax fraud scheme.

He will get one year and one day in prison!  How about deportation?

Authorities said Wednesday Tadesse was sentenced to a year and one day in prison in connection to the brazen plot. He was also ordered to pay more than $4,000 to the IRS in restitution.

Eyaso Abebe

According to prosecutors, Tadesse and his co-defendant, 20-year-old Eyaso Abebe, obtained names and Social Security numbers from a website that publishes information belonging to unsuspecting victims.

There is nothing to indicate that Mr Holder, who has served as Attorney General of the United States since 2009, was specifically targeted by the duo because of his position in the Obama administration.

Prosecutors said Tadesse and Abebe filed tax returns claiming that all their victims – including Attorney General Holder – worked at Walmart and had similar incomes.

There is more, read it all.

Come to think of it, Wyoming will probably get a few of these “hardship” cases since Georgia is fed up with them.
