DKB: WY bank story :
A friend of ours of 35+ yrs we got into this went into his small bank. The banker knowing he held VNN (he had bought some from her) called him into the back when she saw him in the front of the bank.
She had received a memo saying to expect people to come in very soon to exchange their foreign currency. She had to ask him what this was about.
Which makes me laugh because his info comes from my hubby and I! The memo said that they would be exchanging at an international rate.
She then bought some VND of her own after he explained it! She was shocked she hadn't heard about it. She got the memo yesterday 2/26/14.
The reason I share this is because...
#1 ITS HAPPENING PEOPLE
#2 For those that come in here and say that their banker didnt know anything about this and thinks Tony and his intel team is lying to you...they don't know and some are just now finding out!
WE ARE EXCITED!!!
Oh I forgot she then called all the other employees in and told them. Knowledge is power!

DKB: Its a relationship thing. The friend works with the bankers dad. Most of theirs was bought through that bank. She pulled up exactly how much he had bought there.
[mort] folks lots going on in the back ground and its all good for us..just hang in there because we will see this anytime now-but if these things aren't done...we will be right back where we started and no one wants that...when we get our money..we want to hang on to it..so be sure this delay is for our good.
PT: My WF banker said this is imminent on Sat morn. She said she would love to help me once she gets the green light. I asked her about the 800#s and she told me I didn't need to use them to get the high rate. Maybe this is true, maybe not, but she told me the minute this goes off that she will call ma right away.

IncomeMax: Ending currency manipulation could add millions of jobs
The United States could create 5.8 million jobs if it moved to end global currency manipulation, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute.
The group, a Washington think tank supported by organized labor, said that manipulation of currency exchange rates is a key factor in the United States' $703-billion annual trade deficit.
Several foreign countries devalue their currencies to make their products cheaper, making it difficult for U.S. manufacturers to compete, the report said.
Mind boggling' trove of 1.25bn emails discovered for sale on online black market
A “mind boggling” cache of personal data has been discovered for sale on the online black market. The trove included credentials from more than 360 million accounts and around 1.25 billion email addresses.
The discovery was made by cybersecurity firm Hold Security LLC, who say that they obtained the data over the past three weeks and noted that the records had been stolen in separate attacks.
One of these attacks reportedly yielded some 105 million records, making it the single largest data breach in cybercrime history.
"The sheer volume is overwhelming," said Alix Holden, chief information security officer of Hold Security.
Hold Security says that the email addresses came from all major providers including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and that many non-profit organizations and “almost all” Fortune 500 companies had been affected.
Holden also noted that many of the breaches had not yet been made public by the affected companies, and that many were possibly unaware they had been hacked. “We have staff working around the clock to identify the victims,” he said.
For this reason the danger posed by the breach applies to both consumers and companies. Although there were no financial details disclosed (eg credit card numbers), hackers could use the email addresses and passwords for sale to access anything from bank accounts to corporate records.
Graham Cluley, an online security consultant, told the BBC that the discovery was “Godzilla-sized”.
"There may be some duplicates but, even so, it sounds like a complete treasure trove for cybercriminals,” said Mr Cluley, noting that the details might be used not only to access accounts, but to discover new patterns in aid of future hacks.
"If people have a big database of passwords, they use it to find out what the regular ones are. The next time they want to crack into an account, they can use the most common passwords,” said Mr Cluley.
