ID theft at Catholic schools in Seattle, Longview
Someone has been filing false tax returns and taking refunds.
KING reports two Catholic high schools in Seattle changed their schedules Friday so the staff can deal with the threat of identity theft. O’Dea High cancelled classes and Bishop Blanchet High is dismissing students early.
The Daily News reports at least 10 teachers and some volunteers at St. Rose Catholic Church and schools in Longview are among potential victims. One teacher said her tax return was rejected because she was told it had already been filed.
Church employees are advised to check with the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit.
