Yes, but it was for Charity!

Two brothers get 51 months in prison for $11-million tax fraud

Two Vancouver-area brothers have been sentenced to 51 months in prison each after committing an $11-million tax fraud.

In December, following a three-week trial, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elliott Myers found Fareed Mohammed Raza, 42, and Saheem Mohammed Raza, 35, each guilty of one count of fraud over $5,000.

As tax preparers, the brothers issued false donation receipts to 781 clients in the amount of $11 million in exchange for cash donations not passed on to a Bangladesh charity.

      I knew a pally whose family worked pretty hard and didn’t seem that bad.
      He told me a story about his cousins who went shopping at stuporstore and bought hundreds of dollars worth of groceries.
      Then after loading them into their car they went back into the store and refilled their shopping bags with everything they had just bought and tried to get out by showing their receipt to store security when challenged.
      They weren’t allowed to leave with the second load.

        That’s a common scam now. They rely on their “ethnic” appearance to discourage challenges from the security goons. The goons are making six bucks an hour, and if even a whiff of “RAYSIST” comes their way — they have basically been dhimmified.

    To top it off the “charity” was probably a terrorist organization.

    The name Mohammed should have been a major clue.
