For the non American people: is that illegal?

@Budza, no it's fraud. To them it's free money, to me it's a small percentage of my taxes that is taken from me every paycheck. Now you may think this is a small operation between two people, but like the other commenters have said it's pretty rampant. In some areas there's actually a underground crime ring: see here for a Police Sting that caught them in act. Sometimes even your mom-pop stores are defrauding the tax payers.
