No. Arizona inmates charged in tax-refund scam

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Criminal charges pending in Yavapai County accuse 11 county jail inmates of participating in a scheme to defraud federal taxpayers by filing false claims for income-tax refunds.

Authorities said the inmates expected to net hundreds of thousands of dollars from the scheme allegedly involving both inmates in custody as well as at least one person on the outside.

According to The Daily Courier, the refunds were to be placed on disposable and untraceable debit cards.

Court records indicate a grand jury issued an indictment in January. It accuses the alleged ringleader of 126 counts of forgery and other crimes.

The case is pending in Yavapai County Superior Court.
