The state of Illinois is cracking down on folks who have knowingly collected unemployment while still working. 

Lawmakers decided that they will ask nicely for the money to be repaid, if not they’ll just take their state tax refund or lottery winnings until the debt is paid. 

And viola, just like that the state has recovered $26.3 million this year alone. 

Over the past three years the state has recovered over $120 million from 58,376 people who have tried to play the system.
