Anthrax Threats Focus on JPMorgan Chase

. Thursday, October 23

The New York Times and 7 Chase banks in Phoenix yesterday received letters with a threatening message and a granular, white powder substance, reminiscent of the post Sept. 11 anthrax letters that killed 5 people. According to the FBI, similar letters have been received in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Washington, D.C.

The news article does not state whether the recipients of the powdered letters have all been Chase banks, though it does state that JPMorgan Chase has "aggressively acquired other assets as the financial system has weakened," and is now the largest, strongest bank in the country. A monopoly may be in the making; and it looks like someone or some group is loudly voicing their displeasure at this prospect, especially since little news of the build-up has leaked into mainstream media. Of course, with little detail shared, we can only speculate.
