Indiana IRS Workers Arrested

by

Four former Internal Revenue Service employees who worked at a call center in Indianapolis have been convicted on fraud charges alleging that they claimed unemployment benefits while working for the federal agency. The four individuals received more than $30,000 in jobless benefits while they were working. 

A fifth defendant was expected to plead guilty to charges of bilking taxpayers out of another $8,700 in the scheme. 

Federal prosecutors say the defendants engaged in a scheme to falsely claim unemployment benefits even as they were employed by the IRS during tax season.
