Pure Evil: Teenage Nursing Assistants Filmed Themselves Laughing As They Beat Up 98-Year-Old Woman

Two Teenage Nursing Assistants ‘Filmed Themselves Laughing As They Beat Up 98-Year-Old Woman In Care Home They Worked At’ – Daily Mail

Two teenage girls have been charged with abuse after filming themselves laughing as they hit an elderly resident at the Illinois care home they worked in.

Chemyra Barnett and Jacqueline Santos, who are both 18, were charged with aggravated battery of a person over 60, and unlawful videotaping in court on Friday.

The teenagers have also been banned from the Rosewood Care Center, where they were alleged to have hit a 98-year-old woman.

.

.
Police were called to the care home on Thursday, after another employee contacted them to report the alleged abuse.

Barnett and Santon, who had both worked at the home for less than a year, could be seen laughing as they struck the elderly woman, who has dementia, according to court documents.

The young nursing assistants are also accused of sharing the video with friends.

Their alleged victim, who has not been named, was not injured in the attack.

‘It’s just a sad situation all around,’ police spokeswoman Lisa Blackwell told the Chicago Tribune.

Bail has been set at $15,000 each for the pair, who are due to appear in court again on March 27.

.

.

.
As part of their bail conditions, Barnett and Santon were banned from going to the care center or contacting the victim or her family.

They have also been banned from having a cell phone or sharing the video.

Ivy Gleeson, the nursing home administrator, confirmed that the nursing assistants had been fired, adding: ‘In our facility, resident safety is our utmost concern.’

Woman Gets 300 Days In Jail For Contempt Of Court Because She Refuses To Just Shut Up (Video)

Dumbest Woman Ever Mouths Off To Judge, Gets 300 Days In Jail – Larry Brown Sports

.

.
This video is actually from last summer, but I saw it for the first time this week and thought it was too awesome not to share here.

According to The Chronicle-Telegram’s story from August, the woman in the video is 32-year-old Ebony Burks, and she was being arraigned on domestic violence charges. Burks was appearing via video from Lorain County Jail and actually was pretty composed when she pleaded not guilty. But things took a turn for the worst when she realized that terms of the restraining order imposed by Elyria Municipal Court Judge Gary Bennett included her avoiding all contact with the two alleged victims, meaning she couldn’t go to the home she shared with her grandfather.

As soon as Burks puts it together that she can’t go home, the fireworks begin. I mean she just brings out the A+ attitude. She tells the judge “I bet I do” go home as if she’s the boss, and then she just can’t shut up as the judge continues to hit her with 30-day contempt of court charges. It starts off at 30 and escalates all the way up to 300, which was a record for Bennett, thanks to a couple of hearty F-bombs at the end. She was just like that kid trying to be cool in elementary school while the teacher is threatening with detention. Only this was real life, and jail is much worse than detention.

Well done, Burks, well done. I guess if you’re going to go hard, might as well go all the way.

Pregnant Woman Under Arrest For Shoplifting Asks Cops If She Can Do Some Heroin

Police: Woman Under Arrest Asks Cops If She Can Do Heroin – Chicago Tribune

A 33-year-old Minnesota woman stopped for shoplifting Monday night at a West Side Walmart found herself in bigger trouble after she asked arresting police officers if she could do some heroin, police said.

.
………….

.
Edith Hancock, of the 3000 block of Riverwood Drive in Hastings, Minn., was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor retail theft, police said.

Hancock, who told police she was three months pregnant, was seen going into a changing room at the Walmart at 4650 W. North Ave. with a pair of jeans, leggings, and a black shirt and then leave the changing area wearing those items, according to police.

After taking some cosmetics and placing them in her purse, she tried to leave the store without paying and was stopped by security, according to police. Chicago police were called and she was taken to the Grand Central District station where she was arrested at 7 p.m., according to police.

While she was being processed, she “continually asked” officers for “just one blow,” a street name for heroin, from her purse because she was “getting dopesick,” according to a police report.

Officers found multiple bags of heroin in her purse, and she continued saying that she “only wanted one” of the bags “because she had ten of them and she thought they might be more than a gram although a couple were very light because she had already used from a least a couple,” the report said.

Hancock was released on a signature bond during a hearing today before Judge Donald Panarese at the Leighton Criminal Court building. She is scheduled to appear in court next on Feb. 18.

Assistant Principal Caught On Video Admitting To Woman That She Sexually Abused Her As A Child

California Teacher That Allegedly Abused Girl Exposed In YouTube Video – New York Daily News

A California woman – who says she was sexually abused for years by her basketball coach – confronts her attacker in a damning YouTube video that quickly led to the educator’s resignation.

.

.
“Everything was stolen from me,” Jaime Carrillo, now a mother of two, told KTLA5 as she choked back tears. “I want her to be in jail and to pay for what she’s done.”

Carrillo, 28, has come forward to expose a relationship Andrea Cardosa allegedly started when the girl was just 12 – and stretched throughout her teenage years, according to reports.

Carrillo recorded her phone confrontation with Cardosa – who had since risen to the ranks of assistant principal at Alhambra High School – in a video that was sent to school officials.

Cardosa resigned from her post Friday – the same day the video was posted – and has gone into relative hiding since she was exposed online. Carrillo’s lawyers are exploring the possibility of a criminal or civil suit.

“The matter was handed over to the Alhambra Police Department who immediately began their investigation,” the school said in a statement.

Cardosa was reportedly allowed to quietly resign from her previous position at the middle school and continue her career, her lawyer said.

“That’s typically called passing the trash. If that is in fact true, everyone would agree that’s absolutely outrageous conduct,” her lawyer David Ring said during a news conference on Monday.

The alleged abuse began while Cardosa was working at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside. Carrillo says she was an impressionable girl when Cardosa began ensnaring her in a web of self-pity, Carillo told KLTA.

Cardosa cornered Carrillo one day at school – her advances grew from kissing to X-rated groping, the girl said.

.

.
“She was kissing me, and then it turned into putting her hands down my pants,” she told KTLA. “She just completely manipulated me into thinking that I needed her and I wanted it.”

The two carried on the torrid tryst until Carrillo was 20, she said. Cardosa can barely muster a full sentence in the video as Carrillo repeatedly slammed her alleged abuser for the entire world to hear.

“You should be so ashamed and disgusted with yourself,” Carrillo yells into the phone.

The educator could only eke out an “I am” on the other line.

“How f—–g dare you,” the distraught woman says, shaking as she holds the phone.

“I regret it every day,” Cardosa says glumly.

The YouTube video has collected more than 289,000 views as of Tuesday morning. Many of the commenters commended Carrillo for her bravery. Formal charges have yet to be brought against Cardosa.

Carrillo, who admits to still being emotionally damaged by the relationship, said Monday that she was shocked that Cardosa never apologized during the heated confrontation.

“It took a lot for me to come forward, but I kept thinking about my own kids and how I didn’t wouldn’t want anything happening to them,” Carrillo said.

Here’s the chilling confrontation between Carrillo and Cardosa, blow-by-blow:

Carrillo: Is this Ms. Cardosa?

Cardosa: Yes.

Carrillo: Um, the Ms. Cardosa that used to work in Moreno Valley?

Cardosa: Well, it depends on what part of Moreno Valley. Um, what, you know, um, yes.

Carrillo: Is it Val Verde school district?

Cardosa: Yes.

.

.
Carrillo: [inaudible] used to work at Chemawa?

Cardosa: Yes.

Carrillo: OK. This is Jamie. Um. You’re an assistant principal, huh?

Cardosa: [sigh] Yes.

Carrillo: So what happens when a student comes in and says that they’re having a sexual relationship with a teacher?

Cardosa: Then I would involve law enforcement.

Carrillo: So how is that any different from what you did when I was at Chemawa middle?

Cardosa: It’s not.

Carrillo: So why are you excluded from the law? Why did you do that? I was only 12-years-old when I met you. You realize you brainwashed me and you manipulated me? And that what you did was wrong?

Cardosa: Yes. And I regret it.

.

.
Carrillo: You know that I am completely messed up? That I have so many issues because of you?

Cardosa: I just wanted to help you.

Carrillo: How is having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student helping?

Cardosa: That wasn’t anything that I intended. I don’t even know what happened.

Carrillo: It’s completely shocking to me that you are an assistant principal. Are you doing this with other students too?

Cardosa: No.

Carrillo: Is that how you help them?

Cardosa: No. Not at all.

Carrillo: You ruined my life. You ruined my childhood. You realize that?

Cardosa: No.

Carrillo: You sicken me. You sicken me. Every day when I think about what you did you sicken me. I have kids of my own and I’m the age now that I pretty much met you at and I could never think about doing the things that you did. You should be so ashamed and so disgusted with yourself.

Cardosa: I am. I am.

Carrillo: How F—–g dare you.

Cardosa: I regret it every day. Every day.

Carrillo: You’re disgusting. Bye.

Knockout Game Backfires When Woman Defends Herself Against Attacker – Opposing Views

In an apparent case of the “Knockout Game” gone wrong, new video shows a man attempting to hit a girl and knock her down as part of the game, but his plan backfires when the woman hits him back.

.
……….

The incident, which happened in a Las Vegas shopping mall, shows the woman retaliate as soon as she is hit by the man. She starts to beat him on the head when another man, who is reported to be her boyfriend, runs back to try to break it up when he realizes that the guy hit her.

“You hit a girl?” the apparent boyfriend asks before springing into defense mode and helping the woman beat the man. People are watching the incident unfold, asking what happened, before the woman and her boyfriend angrily walk away.

The man who had originally hit the woman is seen, at the end of the video, lying on the ground in the fetal position with a bloody nose. Since being posted to World Star Hip Hop yesterday, the video has already garnered over a million views and about 4,300 comments.

The “Knockout Game” is a new trend that involves kicking or hitting a random person so that they fall down. There have been reported incidences all over the country, and many of the victims have included children and elderly people. Most recognize the game as a growing trend, but others insist that the media is making it into something bigger. Still, many people have been seriously injured by knockout, and it doesn’t seem to be dying down just yet.

A 92-year-old woman gave a thief a run for his money when he decided to break into her home.

Opal Phelps was awakened Monday by a man in her bedroom with a mask over his face. She wasn’t scared.

“He tried to make me shut up, but he didn’t have no luck at it,” Phelps said.

The senior citizen did not give in to the thief’s demands. When he asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse.

He then instructed her to put on her shoes.

“He had a hold of my leg trying to put them shoes on, and they hard to get on, and I just took my other foot and kicked him right in the face,” Phelps said.

She had a Life Alert monitor on her nightstand and when the intruder grabbed it, she hit the button. The man took off, but he did get away with a gun she had near her bed.

She was defiant to the end.

“I’m going to stay here. I told that cop I was getting me another gun,” Phelps said. “He says get it. I’m going to use it next time I think.”

Woman Repeatedly Calls 911 To Report “Drunk People Inside Bar”

Woman Repeatedly Calls 911 To Report “Drunk People Inside Bar” – Weekly Vice

Mary Jaggers of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida has been jailed after she allegedly called 911 to report that there were drunk people inside the bar she was visiting.

.
…………………

According to police, Jaggers called 911 six different times to complain that there were drunk people inside Artie’s Sportsman Lounge.

Arriving officers spoke with Jaggers, who demanded the arrest of everyone inside the bar. A pat down search, however, revealed that she was in possession of hydrocodone without a prescription.

Jaggers was taken into custody and no other arrests were made.

At her arraignment hearing on Tuesday, Jagger told the judge that she repeatedly called police to prevent anyone from driving home drunk.

“I have a feeling that the mixture between Artie’s Bar and the hydrocodone probably led to count two, the calling of 911,” said Judge Hurley during the hearing.

Jaggers was booked into jail and charged with misuse of 911 and possession of hyrocodone without a prescription.

Not Everyone Who Has an Abortion Is a Woman

Got that?

The “War on Women” isn’t just a war on women. Trans men and gender-non-conforming people are losing their rights too, and we need to rework how we frame these “women’s issues.”

Trans Men have abortions? Not if they are still men. And whether or not someone chooses to “conform” to gender is irrelevant. Men do not get pregnant, but who am I to rain on the Gender Dysfunctional “I am a Victim Too” parade of self-pity. What a Cisexxist I am!

Abortion is so often framed as a women’s issue by both those who advocate for abortion rights and those who seek to dismiss abortion as frivolous. And for abortion rights, a movement that took root in the late 1960s and early 1970s, this makes sense. Prior to a deeper understanding and problematizing of gender and the way that it works, in our social construction, only women had abortions because only women could get pregnant. But in 2013, we should know better, and we need to do better.

At this crucial moment for reproductive freedom and abortion access, the abortion rights movement stands at yet another crossroads: How do we adequately address and include those who have abortions but are not women?

We must acknowledge and come to terms with the implicit cissexism in assuming that only women have abortions. Trans men have abortions. People who do not identify as women have abortions. They deserve to be represented in our advocacy and activist framework. Honestly, I am guilty of perpetuating that harmful myth, both in my rhetoric and framing. I often frame abortion restrictions as misogynistic attacks meant to control women’s reproductive lives, and that is true. But abortion restrictions also affect the lives of people who aren’t women, and they hinder trans men and gender-non-conforming people and others who were Designated Female at Birth (DFAB) from accessing abortion care, as well.

Oh great now I will get angry emails from the anti-Cissexism crowd, and, I suppose the DFAB community as well.

 

Egyptian Woman Sings Freaky, Anti-Obama Song… “Stop This Or I Will Stab You” (Video)

‘Hey Obama, You Are Stupid, Bad Man’: Viral Egyptian Music Video Accuses Obama of Supporting Terrorism, Muslim Brotherhood – The Blaze

A music video featuring an Arabic-singing belly dancer voicing profanity-laced lyrics that accuse President Barack Obama of supporting terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood has gone viral in Egypt.

The video – “You Obama, Your Father, Mother” – features performer Sama Elmasry brandishing a sword next to Obama’s photo as well as various Photoshopped images of the U.S. president including dressed as Osama bin Laden and as a baby in diapers

.

.

The lyrics chastise Obama and U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson for their perceived lack of support for the Egyptian Army which has been in control since the ousting of President Mohammed Morsi last month.

Among the lyrics, according to the video’s subtitled translation (emphasis added):

Hey Obama, Hey Obama
Hey Obama, support the terrorism
Traitor like the Brotherhood members

Obama say it’s a coup
That’s not your business dirty man
Obama say it’s a coup
That’s not your father, mother business
And you Patterson, stop messing
Old bitch woman

Contrary to the lyrics’ suggestion, the U.S. administration has not officially designated the events of early July as a “coup” which under U.S. law would have forced a stop to American financial aid to Egypt.

.

.

The singer then blasts the Obama administration for its call on the Egyptian military last month to release Morsi from jail, after European countries had done the same. She sings that Obama should cede from that position or she will “stab” him and mockingly brandishes a sword against Obama’s photo. She asks why he “told [secular former President Hosni] Mubarak to leave immediately,” implying that Obama always wanted the Islamists to take power.

Besides her sword, Elmasry also brandishes some choice insults including calling Obama a “jerk” and telling him, “fuck you” over threats to cut back foreign aid to Egypt.

.

She sings:

You want us to release Morsi
Hey Obama, you are stupid, bad man
You want us to release Morsi
Stop this or I will stab you
Why then you told Mubarak
To leave immediately?

You threaten us with the U.S. aid
Fuck it and fuck you
You are a jerk
Obaaaaa
You threaten us with the U.S. aid
Your ambassador is very wicked woman
Al-Sisi has beaten you
And Egyptian people supported him

You meet Al-Noor Islamic party
HA..HA..HA
Now we know all the secrets
Egyptians are not idiots
You meet Al-Noor Islamic party
The party is sneaky and menless [sic]

She then accuses Obama of joining forces with “the terrorists,” calling them “all the disgusting guys”:

Hey Obama, your father, your mother
You and the terrorists
Listen to me Obama
Our army is very strong
You Obama, your father, your mother
All the disgusting guys
We are the people tell you
You can’t fool us
You tried to play it
But you can’t play this wicked game
With us because we are the Alfa

At the 3:36 point in the video, Elmasry switches to English, in which she blasts Obama for his friendship with Israel, Turkey and Qatar. Qatar has strong ties with the Muslim Brotherhood , having provided $8 billion in aid to Morsi’s government over the past two years, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star. She says:

Your father and your mother
Your Israel, your Turkey, and your Qatar
All of you , Go to hell!
Listen, Obama
We are Egyptian
We are civilization
Are you listen, Obama?

At the end of the video, English script appears on screen saying: “When Egypt talking, should be America shut up.”

During the massive demonstrations leading up to the ousting of President Morsi last month, numerous anti-American signs were seen in the crowd blasting Obama and Ambassador Patterson over their perceived affinity for the Muslim Brotherhood. An image that appeared repeatedly and was also seen in the video showed Patterson meeting with Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual Guide Mohammed Badie.

Woman Can’t Convince Feds To Stop Hispanics From Using Her Address To Obtain Illegal Tax Refund Checks

Feds Unwilling Or Unable To Stop Illegal Checks – Carolina Journal

A Long Island, N.Y., woman has spent nearly two years trying to convince the Internal Revenue Service and the U. S. Postal Service that persons with Hispanic-sounding surnames using her address to obtain tax refunds from the IRS are part of a fraud scheme.

.
……….

She has not found a government agency that will stop the phony tax refunds from arriving in her mailbox. Instead, federal and state authorities pass the buck. The checks, including some offering payment for Hurricane Sandy “relief” to people who may not exist, keep coming.

Carol Cooke is frustrated. “This is fraud. It is our money and they are giving it to people that don’t deserve it. I have had 16 people using the address where I have paid the mortgage and taxes,” she told Carolina Journal. “Nobody has the right to use this address, especially for fraud. Some of the correspondence was in Spanish only.”

Cooke has lived at 557 Boxwood Drive, Shirley, N.Y., for 37 years. She approached CJ about her situation after reading a Carolina Journal Online story about Stolen Identity Refund Fraud. Federal officials say it’s the “No. 1 tax scam of 2013,” with more than $5.2 billion in losses to U.S. taxpayers reported in tax year 2010.

CJ’s initial report in March highlighted a similar scheme based in Durham. Subsequent stories elaborated on other aspects of SIRF. Cooke said she had contacted other news organizations but none expressed interest. CJ met with her in June at her home.

In October 2011 she began receiving IRS correspondence at her home addressed to other people. Initially she wrote on the envelope, “does not live at this address,” and put the items back in the mailbox. Then she took others to the Shirley Post Office and asked an employee to tell her what she needed to do to stop getting other people’s mail at her house. “I can’t stop people from sending mail to your address,” she said she was told.

The next month, IRS refund checks arrived in her mailbox. There was a $7,113 check to Maribel Rodriguez Rosado, a $7,613 check to Nadia Abad Hernandez, and a $6,073 check to Dairysol Bonilla Ocasio. “I realized that those checks were probably part of a fraud scheme,” she said.

She alerted the IRS to the situation with a phone call. The IRS representative told her to mark the envelope “return to sender.” “I was just not satisfied with that. I wanted it to stop. How can these people receive mail and then checks at my address? It is fraud,” she told CJ.

A spokesman for the IRS told CJ that the agency could not discuss specific cases or situations.

Instead of returning the checks via mail, she decided to notify another government agency, the New York attorney general’s office. She copied the checks and completing a consumer complaint form provided by the AG’s office.

The AG did nothing. “We appreciate your alerting us to this matter. We believe the organization shown below” – the IRS – “may be able to assist you and we are forwarding your correspondence there,” wrote Judy Blumenberg from the Bureau of Consumer Frauds and Protection in the AG’s office.

On the IRS website, Cooke found a form titled “IRS Fraud Reward Whistleblower.” She thought she could receive financial compensation for reporting fraudulent activity involving the IRS.

She completed the form and decided to involve her congressman, Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop, in the correspondence. She also filled out a “Case Information and Privacy Release Form Authorization” provided by Bishop’s office.

“This case has been forwarded to the [IRS] Criminal Investigation Division,” wrote IRS Local Taxpayer Advocate Bernardita Tehrani in a letter Bishop’s office received March 12, 2012. Bishop’s office forwarded a copy to Cooke. A spokesman for Bishop told Cooke she did not qualify for a reward. She said her main concern wasn’t the potential for a financial payday; she reported the tax fraud because it was wrong and needed to stop.

Cooke told CJ that some of her neighbors have seen strangers opening mailboxes and sifting through the contents. Several neighbors have received checks and correspondence from the IRS addressed to persons who did not live there. One woman who requested to remain anonymous told CJ that she and her husband received more 20 pieces of correspondence or checks from the IRS, all of which were addressed to people with Hispanic sounding names. Her husband delivered the material to a regional postmaster.

‘Why did you return it?’

More than a year after the IRS was notified of Cooke’s situation, she has heard nothing from the agency and the checks and correspondence have not stopped.

“Ada Gonzalez Collazo” was one name on IRS correspondence Cooke turned over to Bishop in 2012.

In March, Cooke recovered from her mailbox a letter dated March 6, 2013, addressed to Ada Gonzalez Collazo and referencing tax year 2010.

The letter read: “Dear Taxpayer: We received a returned refund check of $7,756 for the tax period listed above. However, we aren’t sure why you returned it. If you sent an explanation, we are sorry but we have no record of receiving it.

“Therefore, we must ask you to send us your reason for returning the refund check.

“If you have any questions please call Denise Pen at 978- 474-9784 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EST. If the number is outside your local calling area, there will be a long-distance charge to you.”

Cooke found another letter June 18 from the IRS addressed to Collazo. The notice stated that Collazo had unpaid taxes for 2010 of $5,979.25 and the total needed to be paid by June 27 to avoid additional penalty and interest charges.

“If you don’t pay the amount due or call us to make payment arrangements, we can file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien on your property at any time, if we haven’t already done so,” the letter read.

“If the lien is in place, you may find it difficult to sell or borrow against your property. The tax lien would also appear on your credit report – which may harm your credit rating¬¬ – and your creditors would also be publicly notified that the IRS has priority to seize your property.

“If you don’t pay your tax debt, we have the right to seize your property.”

Cooke said that she is concerned that the IRS might encumber her property based on Collazo’s unpaid taxes, even though Collazo doesn’t live at her address and may not be a real person.

Cardona and Medina

In May, Cooke received a $410.17 check made out to Daniel Alvarez Cardona and another $410.17 check made out to Milagros Lopez Medina. Each check was accompanied by a letter stating that $10.17 was the amount of interest due on an overpayment of $400 for tax year 2012.

Along with those checks were notices of disaster relief assistance from the IRS. “If you have been impacted by the recent disaster in your area and are unable to meet your tax obligations, the IRS may be able to assist with payment and filing extensions, and if qualified, with an expedited tax refund for casualty losses,” stated the notices.

Separate IRS letters addressed to Cardona and Medina dated Oct. 3, 2011, said the 2010 return of each was on hold pending the receipt of additional employer information. Cooke doesn’t know if the IRS issued original checks to Cardona or Medina, or if Cardona or Medina recovered them from her mailbox.

She later received a notice dated June 10, 2013, from the IRS to Cardona stating that he didn’t file a 2011 tax return.

Some are caught

Cooke called the IRS and Postal Service responses to her situation a big disappointment. “An alert should have gone out that this is not right. Those Social Security numbers and those names should be listed in the IRS computer somewhere. Don’t send anything else to these people because they are not real. They are fraudulent,” she said.

Even though the IRS recently has cracked down on Long Island-based fraud, it is unclear whether the crackdown snared those using Cooke’s address.

In December a federal grand jury indicted six Long Island men for their involvement in schemes using stolen Social Security numbers to file more than 11,000 fraudulent tax returns seeking refunds worth up to $73 million.

According to the indictments, the defendants illegally obtained identification information including Social Security numbers for Puerto Rican residents, and used that information to file false returns claiming large refunds. The returns were filed using addresses in Shirley, West Babylon, and other Long Island towns. Then defendants then allegedly bribed Postal Service employees to intercept mailed tax refund checks. The fraudulently obtained checks were cashed at a check cashing service.

Government response

“By and large, postal employees are honest people. There can be some bad apples in any group,” said Donna Harris, a spokeswoman for the Postal Inspection Service in New York. “If they do something like this they will be taken care of,” she said. She didn’t know the status of the employees who allegedly accepted the bribes and said it’s the responsibility of the U.S. Postal Service rather than the Postal Inspector’s Office to deal with them.

As for Cooke’s situation, Harris said carriers are expected to deliver mail to the address on the envelope. A mail carrier suspecting fraud should contact the postal inspector in his area.

CJ also contacted the IRS Criminal Investigation Office in New York. “I’m sure you’re aware that federal disclosure laws prohibit IRS from discussing specific cases or situations,” IRS spokesman Dan Boone wrote in an email.

“For the 2013 tax season, the IRS has put in place a number of additional steps to prevent identity theft and detect refund fraud before it occurs. During 2012, the IRS protected $20 billion of fraudulent refunds, including those related to identity theft, compared with $14 billion in 2011,” he wrote.

“We have new and additional filters in place for the 2013 filing season aimed at preventing and detecting fraudulent returns. This continually updated system enhances our ability to block accounts when we know of or detect a problem. We added screening filters, including ones that target multiple refunds deposited into a single bank account or those sent to a single address.”

Woman Caught On Tape Casually Plotting Murder Of Husband With Cop Posing As Hit Man

Breathtaking Footage Of Wife Meeting With Fake Hit Man To Plan Her Husband’s Murder – Daily Caller

Muskegon County resident Julia Merfeld hired a Michigan State police detective disguised as a hit man to have her husband murdered.

.

Two meetings between the two were caught on hidden camera and captured this shocking footage.

Merfeld was arrested after the second meeting with the fake hit man, both conversations occurring in his vehicle and lasting about 11 minutes.

21-year-old Merfeld told the cop she thought was a hit-man, “When I first decided to do this… its not that we weren’t getting along. But… terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him.”

Authorities attribute another motive: her 27-year-old husband’s $400,000 life insurance policy. Merfeld planned to use some of the life insurance money to pay the hit man’s fee, she told him.

In this astonishing footage, the young wife discusses possible dates for the killing in between laughs and checking her calendar on her cell phone.

During the second meeting, she gives him a floor plan of the house and directions. She then tells him she wants it done in the most painless way possible.

The detective tells Merfeld that when she leaves his car it will be a done deal, to which the young wife responds, “It makes me sad.” She proceeds to leave the vehicle and wish the hit man good luck.

The man who tipped off police was Carlos Ramos, her co-worker whom she offered $50,000 to kill her husband. Instead, he called police, who set up the meetings with the fake hit man that led to her arrest, according to MLive.

The couple recently moved to Muskegon, MI from New Jersey with their two young children.

Merfeld is currently being held in Muskegon County Jail where she awaits her trial on July 30. The judge committed to a minimum sentence of six years and a maximum up to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to solicitation for murder on June 26th.
