Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
Some people are truly criminal minded. They don’t care if they are in prison, or if they go back to prison. They will continue to commit crimes, because they have this ‘delusion’ they are not going to get caught. They think whatever scam they are, running ‘this time’ is the best thing yet.
Today’s #CrimeDivas, Shannon Henderson, 45, of Tacoma tops the list. Ms. Henderson was serving time in a Washington Women Prison where she came up with a scheme to use a prison pen pal program to steal identities and then filed fraudulent tax returns.
According to records, Ms. Henderson became friends with inmates across the country and used them to get the identities of other people. She also bought personal information of people who worked for a janitorial service employed by the state. The records states that she filed more than 150 tax returns under false identities, she received $56,000 tax refunds that were sent to her at addresses of friends and relatives.
Ms. Henderson was charged, and convicted of wire fraud and aggravated theft. She will serve an additional 30 months in federal prison.
As I said earlier, some people are true criminals and being in prison means nothing to them. What do you think we should do with people like this? Do you think the prison should allow pen pals, or disallow them just because of the criminal act of this one woman? Do you think the relatives and friends should be charged along with Ms. Henderson?
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.
