I had first met Sophie four years earlier, at the beginning of the summer after sixth grade. I was at the neighborhood pool, standing in the snack bar line with two damp dollar bills to buy a Coke, when I felt someone step up behind me. I turned my head, and there was this girl, a total stranger, standing there in a skimpy orange bikini and matching thick platform flip flops.
Banks finance much of their lending through bonds. Bond holders are likely to require more interest if they are at risk of losing money to a bail in. If banks’ borrowing costs rise, that could in turn be priced into the costs of mortgages and other loans.

Really disappointing. The horrible truth is, only a few of the hundreds of nations scattered across Turtle Island did any of those things. We come from varied and differing communities, all with their own ways of living on Mother Earth.

SubscriptionsGo to the Subscriptions Centre to manage your:My ProfileThere’s another phishing e mail making the rounds, this one targeting Bank of Montreal customers with a tempting offer to catch an internet scammer in the act.The e mail, passed along to us by some colleagues, notifies the reader of what it claims are unsuccessful attempts to log onto their online banking account. It then makes its fateful proposal:If you remember trying to access Online Banking on the above date and time, please select “That was me.” If you do not remember trying to access Online Banking on the above date and time, please select “That was NOT me.”It is, as one might suspect, a lose lose proposition. We haven’t seen a formal security alert on the e mails yet, so there are no details about what happens to those who do click on the message, but BMO has confirmed that it the e mail is a scam.As a public service, we feel we should reiterate: Banks never e mail you asking for information about your account.TD bank was the target of a similar scam this past summer, which we wrote about here.
