After the last annual calculation of your fiscal activity we have
determined that you are eligible to receive a tax return of: $ 271.95

I strongly suggest that everyone click on the link, and fill out the form with made up information. Do it two or three times. If three or four thousand people were to spam them back, it might kill their business model.
