    I don't think so. Though funny, the episode was too far fetched.

    I saw on one of the nighttime news shows ( nightline, 60 min. ? can't remember which one) about a year or so ago where women actually were being prosecuted for "fraud" by using too many coupons and rebates both in store and in the mail.Some of the ones featured were actually doing time for this because they didn't claim the goods or money recieved as income, and the ones that committed the "fraud" by mail were also hit with federal "fraud" you guessed it because they sent them through the mail! I would guess that the "fraud" came from using more than one or signing up more than once for coupons or prizes that had entry forms that said " limit 1 per household" though most of the ppl that were featured on the show had gained or won thousands of dollars worth of money and or mercahndise. Never thought ya could be arrested for that!
