(Memphis 2/8/2012) More problems for Mo Money Taxes as two Congressmen from two different states ask for an investigation into the tax preparing service.

Rep. Steve Cohen, (D-TN) , and Rep. Bobby Scott, (D-VA), have requested the investigation.

The letter was sent to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder today.
“We write to ask for an immediate investigation and all other appropriate actions by your office to address the apparently fraudulent and criminal actions of the “Mo Money Taxes” operation in Norfolk, Virginia and vicinity, and in Memphis, Tennessee and vicinity. Complaints by many who recently obtained the help of Mo Money Taxes in filing their returns range from lack of information as to the status of their returns to outright fraudulent filings and bounced checks issued for refunds due filers. The full extent of the problem is not known, but as attached news reports reflect, hundreds of people have been victimized.

Your earliest attention to this serious and growing problem would be appreciated.”
