$3 billion tax refund

Did this guy itemize?

Nearly $3 billion. That's the tax refund requested this year by a convicted armed robber in Pompano Beach, according to a federal indictment.

Prosecutors say Willie Bernard Cameron, 41, filed three bogus IRS 1040 tax returns in May claiming he was owed refunds of $52,918.97, $360,000 and $2.975 billion. Cameron asked for the money after his March release from federal prison, where he was incarcerated for a 1999 armed robbery in Mobile, Ala., prosecutors said.

A federal grand jury in Fort Lauderdale Is your Fort Lauderdale restaurant clean? - Click Here. returned the indictment Thursday.

In October, U.S. District Judge James Cohn revoked Cameron's supervised release and sentenced him to an additional three years for violating probation. If convicted of tax fraud, Cameron could face another 15 years in prison.

Something tells me Cameron wanted to go back to jail. Otherwise he is just incredibly dumb.

If, by some really strange fluke, he had been sent refund checks, and since the government seems to be in a give-money-away mood, we'd be talking about how smart the guy was!

I've heard about incarcerated felons filing for tax refunds which are mailed to PO boxes, then someone on the outside picks up the checks and cashes them.

Who knows? The criminals get away with the strangest things.
