More than 100 NH doctors victims of identity theft, tax fraud
Colby said the society received reports from about 110 physicians, a couple of nurse practitioners, a couple of physician assistants, one dentist and one pharmacist.
Colby said the society received its first report on April 9 and sent out emails to members and non-members alerting them.
"As we started learning more, we realized this was fairly broad," Colby said.
The Secret Service is attempting to see if a data breach somewhere is responsible, he said.
IRS spokeswoman Peggy Riley said she couldn't comment on the situation.
Colby said the victims found out one of two ways about the fraud: when they went to file their returns they were told they had already filed or they were notified that some information on the fraudulent return was missing or incorrect.
Colby said he doesn't know how much money was involved with the fraudulent returns.
"There is just a ridiculous amount of fraud like this going on," he said in a phone interview.
"Whatever they make, whatever they've decided to claim, it doesn't have to have been grounded in reality," Krebs said.
