The FBI is investigating anonymous mailed threats against the Goldman Sachsinvestment firm but does not consider the warnings to be of "high credibility," an investigator said Friday.
The letters, handwritten in red ink on loose-leaf paper and signed "A.Q.U.S.A.," were mailed to 20 newspapers around the country, authorities said. The letters contained the warning: "Hundreds will die. We are inside. You cannot stop us."
A federal law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told the Associated Press that the FBI "does not assign high credibility to the threat" because of the circumstances surrounding the letters, including their brevity and the nonspecific nature of the threat. The investigator spoke on condition of anonymity.
