_Last night Dinar Recaps posted the following rumor and PICTURE. Below it is a post Phoenix made on his private forum Wedn. night.
This is from TempleJC - one good dude!! - BGG post at Dinar Updates Tues. Evening
OK guys - I got brave today - I was hearing about 1st Conv Bank and folk seeing a rate. So I have been to this bank in our town to buy VND - so I paid them a visit. At other times when I was there and got a print out all of the currancies about 100 or so had the buy and the sell rate - I asked them to put up the currancies screen and they did - they were all showing 0.00000. I got a print out and also got a picture.
Here is Phoenix's Confirmation
Ok Many may have seen the above rumor:
Now you know we do not post rumors on the forum and do not even have a rumor section.
I have warned people about rumors and how to deal with such but also remind everyone that just because something is a rumor does not mean it is not true.
This post and picture above is a case in point...I Phoenix after seeing this picture did some digging today and found what bank this picture of a bank screen was reportedly take at.

After locating the bank on line and finding the branch phone numbers but not knowing which branch of said bank it may be I just began a random calling of branches of this bank.
On the first call I was able to connect with a woman who was the branch supervisor.
She was very nice and forthcoming and was able to answer most all of my questions.
She told me the following:
1. YES all of the currencies on the screen are showing all zeros at this time.
2. This has never happened before.
3. It has been this way for almost a full week and started last week.
4. They cannot buy or sell any currencies because of this.
5. They are waiting for the screens to go active and when they do will be able to again buy and sell the IQD
6. They have no idea when that will be and no offical reason for why the screens have zeroed out like this but it is not a glitch but has been done for a reason.
She was very nice and helpful.
So as you can see this info going around is not a rumor but is indeed true information as confirmed today by me...Phoenix.
