007's 1040 Problem: 'Goldfinger' Raid Implicates Sean Connery in Tax Fraud

"Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?"

"No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to. . . pay your taxes!"

Oh, my:
Legendary James Bond actor Sean Connery is being investigated for alleged tax fraud involving the sale of two large tracts of land in Spain.

Investigators say a property firm linked to the 79-year-old actor failed to pay taxes after he and his second wife sold land they owned on the outskirts of Malaga, Spain a UK paper reported Thursday.

The Daily Mail reported that the company, which also assisted in the sale of Connery's beachside mansion, Casa Malibu, in Marbella, Spain, failed to pay upwards of $2 million in taxes stemming from the sale of development rights to the land outside of Malaga.

Bond has defeated all kinds of super-villains but he's no match against the tax man.
