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.
