Conspiracy surrounds $134bn 'bond' find


news.bbc.co.uk

What do you get when you mix two Japanese nationals with some fake US government bonds, a slow train to Switzerland and members of the Italian financial guard?

The answer is a $134bn (£82bn; 97bn euros) conspiracy theory which has fired up a whole realm of financial bloggers on the internet.

But then this is a story which does have the ring of a John Le Carre novel.

It begins with two 50-year-old Japanese men being stopped by Italy's Guardia di Finanza - the country's financial guard - on a train passing through Chiasso, a small border town between Italy and Switzerland.

While the treasury department says they are without question fake who would want to pass on fake treasury bonds and why?

The article says some Sicilian Mafia were indited of a 1 billion fake bond scheme last month.

What would it do to the U.S. economy if $134 billion in fake bonds were dropped into the market?

Could it be Al Qaeda or North Korea trying to destablize the already shaky U. S. economy?

I find it odd that the 2 individuals have completely slipped under the radar.

There is obviously more to the story that is not being revealed.

A plot truly ripe for conspiracy theories indeed.

It's a fascinating international mystery for sure. However, it's already being discussed here. Please add your comments to the existing thread.
