Freddie Mitchell faces IRS charges

At some point in the not-too-distant future, former Eagles receiver Freddie Mitchell may be thanking his hands for not dropping the soap.

FOX 29 in Philadelphia reports that Mitchell faces IRS charges arising from a tax-refund scam.  Specifically, Mitchell and two others allegedly filed false tax returns on behalf of a professional athlete known only as A.G., seeking refunds ranging from $170,000 to $1.9 million, and attaching false documents to support the claims.  The group also allegedly charged A.G. $100,000 for tax preparation services.

Mitchell’s job was to recruit the athletes, and then Jamie Russ-Walls or Richard Walls filed the returns.  They also allegedly filed false returns for Mitchell’s company, Chameleon Enterprises, seeking more than $2 million in phony refunds.

If convicted, Mitchell almost definitely will be heading to very real prison.

    Well, he’ll finally be catching “something” soon.

    Maybe he can get Lenny Dykstra as his cellmate. They can both live in their fantasy world together.

    Another fine draft pick by Andy Reid.

    I wonder if “stickum” is legal in the prison flag football league. If so I see big thing in FredEx’s future.

    Anthony Gonzalez? Again. My post suggesting this was up for 30 minutes and then deleted. Odd…I was just speculating.

    Were the returns actually granted initially? And if so why the hell didn’t he head to a non expediting country ASAP?

    He can call himself “Fred Ex-Con” when he gets out of prison…

  25. quittsburghstoolers says: Mar 7, 2012 5:19 AM

    “There’s Mitchell!”

  26. tombrookshire says: Mar 7, 2012 5:35 AM

    Of all the agencies that he could have fooled around with, Mitchell chooses the one that can nulify the rest of his life. You gotta wonder, can he really be that stupid?

    When I first saw the headline, I thought the IRS was after him because of the “free” dating services he received for appearing on “Millionaire Matchmaker.”

    Oh well, maybe the experience will prepare Freddy for setting up a dating service in prison–DOH.

    Sounds like he took lessons from the Mo Money Tax Service that ripped off a bunch of people in Virginia and other states. What an idiot.

    Hey genius, I think you mean Non-Extradition Country. Unless of course you intended to say that he should head to a slow (or “non expediting”) country…in which case you are an even bigger tard…
