Every tax year at tax return o’clock Axemen scramble to fill out tax returns.
Similarly when a disaster strikes in the USA the Axemen are first in line to apply for emergency funds from FEMA (The Federal Emergency Management Agency). Funds that have been allocated by the government to help the population rebuild their lives.
Been somewhat human I have no issues with (the very small handful of) Axemen who operate legitimate businesses applying for refunds when they have overpaid tax during the year.
In the same breath should an Axeman and his family have their house destroyed in Florida during a hurricane… I wouldn’t moan too hard that they’d applied and received funds from FEMA to help them rebuild their life.
However I’ve never seen an axeman overpay tax or have their house destroyed in a hurricane.
What I do see however is thousands of tax returns made on other peoples behalf without any of them knowing. Money that is gifted to the NBM members far too easily. Money they have the government often load for them onto digital untraceable debit cards.
Also Axemen living all around the world applying to FEMA (for up-to $200,000) for houses they only claim are destroyed. Claims they make in other peoples name. Often from the same personal and financial information they have used for their bogus tax returns.
It was under this backdrop of opportunism, deception and profiteering that when governments around the world announced various schemes (such as furlough payments and bounce back loans) to support those individuals and businesses effected by coronavirus… I predicted it would be a scheme heavily abused.
In the past months that has turned out to be the case with identity thieves recycling as much of their old data as possible and making claims for help in as many names as possible.
As with the tax returns and the FEMA assistance very little is done to prevent abuse and the criminals are gifted money incredibly easily.
The Axemen know this and are again first in line with their hands out. Making as many applications for financial help as they can. Limited only by the number of hours in the day they can sit at a PC filling out the forms.
A typical ‘fullz information” that the axmen are using (with retractions):
“TERI”,”XXXXXX”,”XXXX XXXXXX DR”,”WEST MONROE”,”LA”,”71291″,”XXXXXX@yahoo.com”,”9/10/19XX”,”199.244.XXX.XXX”,”4/8/2014 6:59″,”434636XXX”,”5448XXX”,”LA”,”NO”,””,”43″,”$300.00″,””,””,”3183496XXX”,””,”3189986XXX”,”YES”,””,”ANYTIME”,”RENT”,”1″,”1″,”BI-WEEKLY”,”DAY”,”$1;501-1;7″,”4/11/2014″,”4/25/2014″,””,”XXXXX SURGICAL HOSPITAL”,”7173900XXX”,”0″,”4″,”EMPLOYEE”,””,”EMPLOYMENT”,””,”CHECKING”,”PAPER CHEC”,”PROGRESSIVE BANK”,””,”111102XXX”,”4024XXX”,”0″,”0″,””,””,” “,””,””
Of which they have many tens of thousand to work through.
So the moral of the story is….
Just because you’ve not sent Western Union funds (or your life savings) to Axemen lottery scammers it doesn’t mean you haven’t been a victim of NBM related fraud.
We’re all going to be paying for this latest upsurge in free money given to them for many years to come. The bill is going to be in the billions.
