From 2012 to 2015, Wesly Divers, used the stolen information of hundreds of victims to electronically file fraudulent tax returns in their names. In several instances, Divers filed fraudulent returns year after year in the names of the same victims. He masked his identity through sophisticated means, including using virtual private networks (VPNs) to hide his internet protocol (IP) address from IRS servers. During the course of the scheme, through thousands of fraudulent tax returns, Divers claimed roughly $1.5 million in tax refunds. Although the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) was able to detect and stop roughly $1 million of the fraudulent payouts, Divers received $454,121.72. His co-conspirator, 28-year-old Rony Dorismond, received $58,232 in tax refunds from the U.S. Treasury in the name of these victims.
