The linked in profile seems real enough...That's my cousin, Robert Holmes. That profile seems to accurately describe his public accomplishments and
the photo is in fact a photo of the correct man. Note, however, that that profile itself makes no mention of LIBOR. While it most certainly is
possible that Bobby might understand such supposedly existing algorithms and he maybe COULD have worked with software anticipating what is is claimed
it is he has knowledge of, the first time I ever heard of Bobby having any connection with LIBOR was after the tragedy and even then not from anyone
within the family but instead only as an internet rumor. I'm not saying I'm certain this is all bunk, I'm just saying I've never heard of it and
there are others in my family who would understand such things if they were ever mentioned in passing conversation and LIBOR did came up in casual
conversations prior to the tragedy but only, as I say, in casual passing conversation between family members but no more so than any other story in
the news and not at all with any mention of Bobby at all or what it is he would know any more so than anybody else.
What I do find to be somewhat of a stretch is some of the mention of the family being 'Bluebloods'. Trust me, there is no old family money. There is
no family connection to any billionaires. Robert Holmes' mother, who mercifully passed just prior to this family disgrace was an avid genealogist and
if there were anything of the likes of any 'Rothschild’s' in the family, we'd know it but there aren't. Yes, her family came over on the
Mayflower but not with any money. Several branches of the family were some of America's earliest immigrants but a little old lady holding membership
in 'The Daughters of The American Revolution' hardly makes one a 'Blueblood'. Yes, most everybody in the family lives a comfortable life but rich
we ain't. Robert Holmes father was a cold war era Air Force officer and had a second career as a school teacher.
