Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions offers a small bit of consolation for taxpayers who have had taxes filed fraudulently under their names and IDs by giving details of one criminal who has been taken down.
Houston, TX – August 13, 2018 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled “Criminal Steals Millions From U.S. Taxpayers Who Then Pay To Feed And House Him.” Mr. Fowler traces the fraud perpetrated by the alleged master mind of a criminal ring since arriving in this country.
Fowler states, “Well, according to the IRS it might be cause for celebration since Emmanuel Oluwatosin Kazeem, 35, of Bowie, Maryland, and Nigeria, has been arrested and sentenced to 15 years in prison for leading a conspiracy to steal IDs and file fraudulent returns.”
As Fowler points out, “Kazeem has stolen literally millions of dollars from hundreds of thousands American taxpayers in the past five years or more.” He continues adding, “He entered the country on a student visa from Nigeria and immediately set out to defraud. He began with marriage fraud to evade immigration laws.Then, according to an article published at accountingtoday.com, “In April 2014, while leading the tax fraud scheme, he filed for naturalization under the Immigration and Nationality Act. Based on the false information provided to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, he was approved. The same year he personally participated in filing more than 1,445 fraudulent federal returns and received almost $3.4 million from returns paid out by the IRS.”
“According to the same article,” Fowler writes, “Kazeem has been linked to 10,139 fraudulent federal returns attempting to get more than $91 million in refunds, and to successfully receiving over $11.6 million. They also report that tax refunds were withdrawn from debit cards and at least 2,000 wire transfers totaling more than $2.1 million were sent to Nigeria. More than 700 of those transfers, totaling more than $690,000, were directly linked to Kazeem.”
