DoJ accuses Debra Windham of stealing from her clients and the government

A former US Internal Revenue
Service
secretary has been accused of swindling her clients and the
government out of $850,000 (£483,000).

The Department of Justice
has accused Debra Windham of, between 2004 and 2006, claiming false deductions
for her clients and then applying for refund application loans in their names
without their knowledge. She allegedly then kept a portion of the refund for
herself, again without the client’s knowledge.

The DoJ filed for a permanent injunction against her at a Chicago federal
district court in order to stop Windham preparing any more tax returns, reported
WebCPA.
