I find it interesting that Snopes.com has nothing at all about ShoreBank. That implies (but doesn't prove) that no hoaxes have been perpetrated in assocation with ShoreBank.
I also find it interesting that nobody in this forum has noted that ShoreBank collapsed on August 20. Here's the story from Chicago Tribune: Chicago's ShoreBank fails, is bought by investors - Chicago Tribune
PS: Mr. C. sounds much better educated, more informed, and perhaps even more intelligent than any of his critics in this forum.
