“Don’t worry about it. Take the money. We’ll deal with the details later,” said no one ever — especially not the federal government. But you took the money offered by the CARES Act, and in good faith agreed to the undisclosed terms and conditions.
You signed the attestation statement (or tacitly agreed to it if you kept the money for 90 days or longer) after giving it as much thought as you did the new terms and conditions of the recent iPhone update. To summarize, you took money, spent some or all of it, yet didn’t know whether there were strings attached.
It sounds almost Kafkaesque, but essentially that is what happened.
