WICKED WAY TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF Y2K PROBLEMS

By CBR Staff Writer

Y2K scamsters are suggesting that people should deposit $10 in several banks towards the end of next year. The worst that can happen is that as soon as banks open in the new millennium you can draw your $10 out again. But for those banks that have failed to upgrade, the $10 was deposited 100 years previously at a time when a dollar was serious money and has been earning compound interest for a century. Just make sure that you get your money out before they work out what has been happening, said one insider.
