Lots of anger out there:

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. today issued an alert to banks, credit unions and brokerages regarding threatening letters.

The alert reads:

“The FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and state and local authorities are investigating more than 30 threatening letters that have been received by financial institutions in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Washington, D.C. Most of these letters contain a powder substance with a threatening communication. At this point, field and laboratory tests on the powder have been negative. Financial institutions that receive one of these letters at any location should contact their local FBI office and ask for the WMD Coordinator.”
