FAIRFAX, Va. (WUSA9) -- A 40-year-old woman has been arrested and charged for fraudulent preparation of income tax return documents, police said.
Thuy Tien Le of 12808 Madeley Court is the owner of T2 Advantage LLC, a tax preparation company. She has been charged with one count of money laundering, one count of obtaining money by false pretense, and two counts of identity theft with intent to defraud, officials said.
In a press release it says, "The victim received the prepared documents including a statement indicating exactly what their federal and state refunds would be. Shortly thereafter, the victim was in the process of refinancing their mortgage and discovered that the tax documents the mortgage company obtained from the Internal Revenue Service were different than the ones Le provided to the victim. Detectives, working with special agents of the IRS, determined that Le was allegedly altering the tax documents prior to submitting them to the IRS; increasing the amount of the refunds and having those proceeds electronically deposited into an account other than the victims."
Detectives would like to speak to anyone else who may have also been a victim of this type of fraud. You can contact police at 703-691-2131.
