Prisoners cashed in on homebuyer tax credit

http://money.cnn.com/2010/06/23/real_estate/money_stimulus_f...

More than 1,200 prison inmates, including 241 serving life sentences, defrauded the government of $9.1 million in tax credits reserved for first-time homebuyers, according to a Treasury Department report released Wednesday.

Treasury's inspector general also found that thousands of people filed multiple claims or made claims outside the allotted time period. In all, more than $28 million was improperly doled out.

Phil has been right here, helping us avoid submission to that dog's tail.

Besides, convicts may buy a house in anticipation of an unscheduled exit from prison. Or, in the case of lifers, they may plan to live there in a future life.

I don't really understand it all, but I'm sure Phil would have helped them see any error of in their efforts if only they would bother to post.
