A crafty couple that operated a charity that purported to provide goods to the needy was sentenced to prison for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and tax evasion. The bewildered lovebirds were sentenced to 15 months in the Slammer, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney Robert S. Brewer, Jr. for the Southern District.According to court documents and statements made in court, they operated a tax-exempt charitable organization whose stated mission was to provide assistance to low income families and individuals in need. From 2011 through 2016, they fraudulently obtained more than $1.35 million in donated clothing and other items by falsely representing to the donors that the items would be given to needy recipients. In fact, they only gave about $13,000 in charitable donations, and then sold the remaining donated items, and used the proceeds to support themselves and their family members.
