Another day, another idiot gets busted over something stupid! A woman accused of filing a phony Georgia state tax return got the shock of her life when she tried to cash her GINORMOUS refund check!
Brigitte Jackson filed a return claiming she was owed a refund over $94 MILLION. She never received her check and contacted state revenue agents about the delay.
After several calls, agents actually cut her a check and told her to come on down to a Cobb County bank inside a supermarket to cash it.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s $94 or $94 million,” Special Investigations Chief Josh Waites told Channel 2. “We’re going to go after you and hold you accountable.”
Waites said investigators asked Jackson to come to a grocery store bank counter to pick up her $94 million refund check, and when she did, she was arrested.
Jackson’s cousin, Darrius White, also allegedly reported $99 million in income, tried to claim a large refund and has also been charged, Waites said. White was not in custody Friday evening.
“They kept calling to check on their refund,” Waites said.
Those phone calls were recorded, and Waites said that helped investigators bring criminal charges against the pair.
