Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
“Knowledge is organized and accessible information; wisdom is knowledge used effectively in the service of worthy ends.”
The CrimeDiva today is Melanie Ferreira, 60, was arrested and charged with wire fraud, filing false claims with the IRS and bank fraud. According to the court files, Ms. Ferreira had purchased a home in 2003 and indicated that she had received over $600,000 in interest. In year 2008, she filed her taxes stating she paid over $670,00 in taxes and received a refund of $440,000 and in 2009, again she filed taxes receiving over $330,000 refund. After investigations by the IRS it was discovered she had not paid any taxes and filed these false tax return claims.
This is a recipe for hell. With technology as advanced as it is why think you are going to get away with something like this. You do not play with the IRS – ‘government money’. First of all, you are gambling with your freedom and secondly, they can go back as far as they want to and pull up all this information against you. So while you are living high on the hog your days are numbered.
It is easy to want these material things money allow you to get/have, but is it worth your freedom and all the pain and hurt it causes not only you but those that care and love you. For me, I would rather be broke and living in a cardboard box with my freedom than locked away in prison living like I’m an animal.
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
