FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) — Five men who ran a $100 million tax fraud scam out of a Miramar home will be sentenced today in Ft. Lauderdale federal court.
Internal Revenue Service investigators say at least 10 laptop computers were used between July 2011 and May 2013 to steal tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent refunds using stolen identities.
Federal prosecutors say it’s one of the largest such fraud cases ever uncovered.
The Miramar group, all men in their 20s and early 30s, pleaded guilty earlier this year to fraud, identity theft and stolen mail possession charges.
