Loving this one - The Federal Reserve Bank....

OMG !

It clearly says "You, the recipient, are obligated to maintain it in a safe, secure and confidential manner. Unauthorized redisclosure or failure to maintain confidentiality may subject you to federal and state penalties."

But you have published it on the internet. With all the secret passwords and pin codes ! Now fraudsters will go and take all the money from the Federal Reserve Bank of Bolox. Shame on you !

I of course am now destroying my computer in order to comply with their security demands.

Re: Loving this one - The Federal Reserve Bank....

I worked at HSBC Bank for 9 years. IT is not a subsidiary of the Federal Reserve Bank. It is the second largest bank in the world.

After working in banking for 40 years, I can say with some degree of accuracy that the letter is 100% Pure Thoroughbred Horse Manure.
