  • Moron attempts to cash fraudulent $94m tax return check at grocery store

    This is hilarious on so many levels:

    Woman accused of filing fake $94 million tax return

    A woman accused of filing a phony state tax return for $94 million was arrested when she attempted to claim her check at a Cobb County bank, Channel 2 Action News reported.

    Brigitte Jackson was arrested and charged with attempted theft by taking and conspiracy to defraud the state, according to an investigator with the Georgia Department of Revenue.

    “It doesn’t matter if it’s $94 or $94 million,” Special Investigations Chief Josh Waites told Channel 2. “We’re going to go after you and hold you accountable.”

    Waites said investigators asked Jackson to come to a grocery store bank counter to pick up her $94 million refund check, and when she did, she was arrested.

    Jackson’s cousin, Darrius White, also allegedly reported $99 million in income, tried to claim a large refund and has also been charged, Waites said. White was not in custody Friday evening.

    “They kept calling to check on their refund,” Waites said.

    Those phone calls were recorded, and Waites said that helped investigators bring criminal charges.

      Did they seriously think this would work and they would get paid close to a 100 million dollars? And did she really think a grocery store carries that much cash on them?

        It's a bad headline but you're reading it wrong. The amount refunded was going to be based on $94M in claimed income. She never had a check for $94M.

              This seems really silly. Did she honestly believe that Cobb County Bank would give her a pallet-full of hundred dollar bills? Or 5 pallets of twenties?
              She was picking up a check for that amount, not cash. I don't think any bank would provide that much cash to anyone outside of the OPEC states.

              No, she was going to claim a $94M refund, according to the article.

              Waites said investigators asked Jackson to come to a grocery store bank counter to pick up her $94 million refund check, and when she did, she was arrested.
