A steady flow of employees of Weather Shield have been reporting identity theft in the form of fraudulent tax returns. The company, or one of the company's affiliates that had access to employee financial information, must have experienced some type of breach or breaches. Over 60 employees have discovered that someone had already filed and collected their tax returns. Employees experienced the problem for 2010 and 2011 tax returns, but no one has been charged for the crimes.
