Absolutely I think it has hints of tricky. There are more than a few people who are trying to run away from debts at the moment. This free money
will get a lot of these runaways to give a current address. No guarantee they will get the money they hope for if they have some debt problems.
It's only good for the well-behaved people.
As far as searching for addresses goes, I don't think this bonus check to everybody who qualifies is for making a database. IRS already has that,
and I think they would not have to go too far to find more information, without asking the people. I think it really is stimulus money, like the
government claims. But, on the side, it could be something of a bribe too. Money makes a lot of intolerable things more tolerable.
