February 26, 2009 5:24:18 AM PST
What would you do if your tax refund check was 16 times what you thought it was going to be?Would you let the IRS know about the mistake, or would you keep the money and not say anything?

A Palmdale woman recently faced that exact situation.

"I was shocked. I thought it was a really nice stimulus package," she said.

The woman, who does not want to be identified, said she was expecting $4,900 from the IRS, but instead, she got about $80,000.

The woman said she tried to get a hold of someone from the IRS to take the money back, but so far, it's still in her bank account.
