More Thievery

What if you were walking down the street and some thug stops you, takes your wallet, steals the money, gives you back your empty wallet and runs away? Then a few days later, you receive a letter in the mail from him stating he might give you some of your own money back - if he thinks you deserve it. But you’ll have to prove you’re deserving.

All you have to do is fill out a form and if you meet his arbitrary criteria, you just might get a few of your own dollars returned. How much is a few? You won't know until the check arrives. And this thug is earning interest on your money right up until you get your money back. Or you may get nothing back.

This might sound like an odd scenario for people who don’t live in New Jersey but for those of us who do, it’s a very real and very ridiculous scenario called the Homestead Rebate.
