Why can't I...
Send one of these scam emails to a government (after all they print the money) and have them drop off a load of cash.
I'd probably end up in the hoosegow, but I'd live large for a couple of days. Then again with government efficiencies it might take a while. I get all these offers of IRS forgiveness all the time, so they must have some spare change floating around to line my pockets. I might even retire.
Message to IRS: I am due a refund of (large) amount. Send it to me. Cash is OK.
