Miami man charged with filing false claims

By Palm Beach

FORT LAUDERDALE — An ex-con allegedly tried to con the IRS for $14 trillion. Yes, that's 14 trillion with a t. And no, he doesn’t work for AIG.

A federal grand jury has indicted Marlon T. Moore, a/k/a Dammon Green, a/k/aTyrone Moore, a/k/a X-Large Moore, 38, of Miami, on charges that he filed more than $14 trillion in claims against the Internal Revenue Service. Moore was being held pending a hearing Thursday at 10 a.m.

According to the Indictment, defendant Moore was released as an inmate from the Federal Correctional Complex, located in Coleman in December 2007. After his release, Moore allegedly prepared fraudulent documents claiming that the Treasury Department and the IRS owed $5.95 trillion; $2.975 trillion and  $6 trillion. In fact, however, defendant Moore knew he was owed no such amounts.

The Indictment also alleged that Moore also prepared and submitted numerous false income tax returns, claiming he was owed refunds of more than $10 million.

If convicted, Moore faces up to three years in prison for impeding the IRS, and up to five years’ for each false statement count.
