Wow! Talk about counterfeiting. 3 boxes of treasury bills worth $1 Billion each were found in a warehouse. Don't know if anyone follows some of the stuff Benjamin Fulford talks about, but things like this seem to go along with his news. Similar to the lawsuit that was recently filed with $1 Trillion at stake. I hope this is a major blow to TPTB.

Italian anti-mafia prosecutors said they seized a record $6 trillion of allegedly fake U.S. Treasury bonds, an amount that’s almost half of the U.S.’s public debt. www.bloomberg.com...

Benjamin Fulford seems to be on the ball right now. Sometimes though he looks a couple a tins short of a six pack.

Given The United States 15 trillion dollar debt and near 100 trillion dollar present value of unfunded liabilities, those fake notes probably have about the same value as real ones!

I agree that he can seem odd at times. I personally think that is because he has lived in Japan so long. Japanese is an aggressive sounding language and since he probably speak more Japanese daily than English I bet the aggressivness bleeds over.

I agree! The Federal Reserve has got to go. They have proven time and time again that they can not do what they claim. Also since a few control it you know its going to do their bidding above what is right.

I think I can safely predict that somebody, somewhere is mighty pissed and feeling very betrayed right now! Can you imagine hearing via the TV/Radio that that dodgy money you got cheap last year really is dodgy?
3-1 It was Vatican money....

I'd like to know how someone, anyone, expected to use them. Would they be used in bulk and for what possible purpose? "Hello, I'd like to buy Kenya!"

I wonder if it is at all related to to this from 2009?

My guess is that the people involved are at such a high level that I bet they would not even question if they were real or not. If you find the article, I saw it on msnbc.com, you will see a picture of an old official looking metal lock box they were in.

That totally doesn't surprise me, hell a well printed 100 dollar bill from a bubble jet printer is good enough for a Swiss bank account. It's about time someones digging into such frauds, and busting them. Swiss banks need to have way more checks and balances than they do. I think a good start would be making currency only worth anything at a foreign exchange center not a bank that people can borrow against sitting in an account with fake funds, it's not sitting in the bank, it's just a number sitting on a computer screen. Virtual cash, so what if that were 6 trillion in forged cash in the account but real dollars on a screen? Now turn that what if into most of the time it is, especially when it comes to foreign accounts, mostly Swiss accounts for that matter. Of course it's also a nice magical way to suddenly bring down the national debt by 6 trillion dollars, so was this some covert economy boosting operation? Who knows.

I think this is another sign that the people who have been in control of the financial system are beginning to lose that control. I think 20 years ago we would have never heard about this. The fact that it is in the news speaks volumes IMO.

BBC news showed some picture. They are obviously and preposterously fake. They purport to be 1934 gold certificates issued by the Treasury. Each is in the amount of "1 billion dollars", which for 1934 is ridiculous.

It's like saying some painting is a real Rembrandt when the subject is that of a Man In Floppy Hat Under A Saturn V Rocket.

Besides, any such thing would be numbered and the Treasury keeps track of oustanding obligations by number. So even today if you go up to cash some electronic T-bond, you need a CUSIP number and the computer knows if it has already been paid out or retired.

Clearly their only use would be used to scam some other group of stupid criminals.

Really? What do you think might happen if you try to deposit a bubble-jet printed 100 dollar bill in a Swiss bank? They are not keen on getting scammed. The bankers are Swiss-German, after all, and do not have a sense of humor.

I figured it out! They'd trade with the morans who are into Bitcoins.

Google search corrupt Swiss accounts results: 12,600,000 results in 0.24 seconds....nah man nothing to see here move along.

People that talk like they know about something when they don't based on some random generalization because of someones nationality needs to get back under their troll bridges.

Well, of course there are overseas bank accounts with shady sources of money. The Swiss banks won't ask where the money comes from or how it was obtained, but they sure will care that the money is actually real!

Attempting to deposit a counterfeit note (thereby turning fake money into a real liability of the bank) is not amusing to bankers. One thing for sure in Switzerland, don't mess with the banks. You're liable to be arrested and send to prison.

Oh, thanks, I knew I left my monopoly set somewhere. Please just tell the Italians to send it to me, ATS, c/o ProfEmeritus. You can have Broadway and Park Place as a reward, as well as a "Get out of a FEMA camp Card".
