    This isn't surprising to me. Our Federal government is in a big bucks game, and it is horribly run. I don't find it surprising that grifters would be able to figure out how to turn it into a lucrative con. Kind of an interesting story.

    The IRS isn't helping them to do it, but of course you know that, Professor.

    Yes, because until now, no one had ever committed tax fraud.

    Has to be millions, although $1 billion would only be a fraction of 1 percent of our Federal budget, sadly.

    The IRS doesn't verify the W2 forms until after the refund is issued, and they will issue the refund to a Debit card/account just set up. Of course the IRS is making it easy to defraud them. But you know that, Gilligan.

    Maybe they should subcontract that out to a private company, because we know they never make mistakes or are victimized by fraud.

    That only happens with the evulll evull guvvmint.

    I suppose some subsidiary of Koch Industries can handle it.
