Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Tax Fraud Sends Another to Prison

I had to  get a quote to start this post off and here it goes;  “O, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” Sir Walter Scott

Our CrimeDiva was already in a heck of a mess, but thought she was slick enough to fool the court – bad form!

Today’s CrimeDiva, Denise LaShawn Reed, 45, of Oakland, CA was charged, convicted, and sentenced to 27 months in prison for filing fake tax returns and lying to a judge about her health.

According to official records, Ms. Reed filed 14 false tax claims with the Internal Revenue Service and illegally received over $94,000. She used the names and information of other women without their permission, one who even lived in her household, and then she forged a document using a hospital letterhead, which indicated she was undergoing breast cancer treatment in an effort to get the sentencing judge to lower her sentence. You know that pissed the judge off big time, so in returned the judge slapped Ms. Reed with obstructing justice , which upped her sentence, and then sent Ms. Reed straight to prison.

The money Ms. Reed obtained was used to pay personal expenses to US Airways, Southwest Airlines, Wynn Hotel Las Vegas, Furniture Gallery and her daughter’s school. All that so she could have fun….! Okay listen up, and hopefully you will share this with a woman you know. When you commit a crime especially a white-collar crime, at some point it is going to come to light. Your freedom,  your time away from your children and family is priceless and no amount of money can ever replace that. Live within your means….

It is 2014, I am asking that you join me in stopping white-collar crimes, especially those committed by females. Take a minute to share your wisdom about the harm this does to a person’s life, their family, and the community. If you are new to this site take a few minutes to read our mission statement and read a few posts that should be enough to allow you to begin a discussion. Why talk about this, because white-collar crimes are secrets only known to the person/s that are committing it. No one knows until you hear about it through the news that someone has been arrested. You think someone you know would never do this???  Well, just read through some of these posts or go to our website: and look at the faces of these mothers, grandmothers, friends, and co-workers who, like you, thought no one they knew  would do should a thing.
