I too have been getting this message. I know I qualify, a joint filing status with my wife and kids of two, and both of us are out of a job and yet we have not seen a penny. I have read that the IRS has mistakenly send the money to people that are already dead or even work visa immigrants (which both should not be entitled to any money). How the IRS got the algorithm to allow that is beyond me. I am a programmer, they probably got some weak programmers that do not even look at the entire metrics within the database to filter which person should get it. Obviously, it is hard to determine if someone is already dead, but shouldn't citizens be an easy filter? Combine the database with USCIS to be part of the filter. If you have half ass programmers, do expect to have weak or loop holes in IRS website as well. We need everything to be air tight during this time, to ensure the well being of the country.
I've been getting this message for about 2 months now. I bet they don't have any trouble finding info about you if you owe them money. In fact, I did owe them money last year and they communicated by snail mail several times. Ridiculous.
