I'm sorry, but it makes me nauseous that this sort of thing is given credence by  anyone.  Surely even MAIL-reading  types can see  that apart from smugly  making life more wretched for the unfortunate, these propositions  are absurd, largely unworkable, and far more costly than paying out to the very few who are playing the system?  (Ears start steaming, 'time for caffeine' alarm goes off in brainstem...)
