A hoax Internet rumor that has been doing the rounds over the last few days posits that unless the House follows the Senate in approving the bailout bill tonight then all U.S. banks will be forced to close for one week. The scam is noteworthy because it echoes the fearmongering rhetoric being spewed by the White House, while the source of the claim leads back to an alleged FBI informant.
There you have it, folks. From the folks that brought you COINTELPRO. The greedy bastards are playing dirty to get their hands on $700 billion of YOUR money to give to the banks to loan back to you at interest!
