Two Suspects Indicted for Tax Fraud, Identity Theft

A Kemper County grand jury returned the indictments of 41-year-old Timothy Taylor and 35-year-old Don Darrell Price.

Both are charged with identity theft and tax fraud. The charges stem from an undercover sting in January 2010. That's when the men allegedly tried to file almost 500 fake W-2 forms at a tax service in DeKalb.

It's possible the two men could face additional charges. DeKalb police say they were only able to charge the men with one count each of identity theft and tax fraud.

¶"That's the way that they wanted to handle it," said DeKalb Asst. Police Chief Charles Barrett of federal law enforcement. "So, that's the way we handled it. Of course, we did the initial arrests and everything. I don't know what the federal is going to do. They won't advise us. That's strictly hush-hush on that, but that's the major charges we are charging them with."

Taylor and Price are both free on bond. Their cases are set to go to trial in DeKalb July 28.

    This is a GREAT article. In David Scott’s words, everyone needs to be a mini-Security Officer today. I think Mr. Scott, the author, is right: Most individuals and organizations enjoy Security largely as a matter of luck. For some free insight (and free is good!), check out his blog, “The Business-Technology Weave” – you can Google to it, or search on the site IT Knowledge Exchange which hosts it. Anyone else here reading I.T. WARS? It reflects much of what is said here. I had to read parts of this book as part of my employee orientation at a new job. The book talks about a whole new culture as being necessary – an eCulture – for a true understanding of security, being that most identity/data breaches are due to simple human errors. It has great chapters on security, as well as risk, content management, project management, acceptable use, various plans and policies, and so on. Just Google IT WARS.

    These are the common scenario's now a day. Identity theft problem is one of the major problem for any organization. But i think in this case fingerprint biometrics, finger vein technology can provide best solution.Biometric time and attendance system can protect organizations identity theft problem. But the ultimate solution of identity solution is to encourage people working ethically. fingerprint time clock software of various software companies initially can give solution of this problem.
