A woman accused of filing a phony state tax return for $94 million was arrested when she attempted to claim her check at a Cobb County bank, WSB-TV reported.

Brigitte Jackson was arrested and charged with attempted theft by taking and conspiracy to defraud the state, according to an investigator with the Georgia Department of Revenue.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s $94 or $94 million,” Special Investigations Chief Josh Waites told WSB-TV. “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.
