Fraudulent Claims of the $8,000 tax credit

.
I heard on NPR a few days ago that there is an enormous number of fraudulent claims for this tax credit and that the IRS is unable to challenge fraudulent claims for the $8,000 tax credit without doing a full-blown audit! No proof is required, it appears, that the taxpayer is a first time home buyer or that they have actually bought a house!


Any legislation extending the tax credit should include a provision putting some controls on this raid on the Treasury!
