GREENBELT, Maryland — Two brothers have been indicted in an alleged $16 million scheme to receive fraudulent tax refunds.

Thirty-seven-year-old Sean Aude Gallman of Upper Marlboro and 41-year-old Eric Maurice Gallman of Huntersville, North Carolina, were indicted Monday by a federal grand jury in Greenbelt.

The three-count indictment alleges that the Gallman brothers set up businesses and trusts and requested refunds for those trusts. Authorities say the Gallman brothers used mailboxes at numerous private commercial postal carrier stores in Maryland and North Carolina as the addresses for the trusts.

Prosecutors say the brothers received a total of more than $16 million in federal tax refunds from two such trusts.
