Woman loses thousands in tax refund scam
MILWAUKEE- For many people that tax refund is all they can depend on for extra cash during the year, so imagine having it stolen. It's happened to Shannon Biehle twice.
When a coworker told Biehle she could help her file taxes, she agreed. It would turn out to be a costly decision.
The first red flag was when Biehle paid the woman $400 but didn't receive any paperwork for her completed taxes. She was expecting a big refund but never received. That's when Biehle knew she was duped.
