The letters are a little too reminiscent of 2001. The FBI is turning to the public for help.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Government agents turned to the public Thursday to help find whoever sent more than 50 threatening letters, many of which declared “it’s payback time,” to banks and government financial institutions.
The FBI released photographs of one of the letters on its website Thursday asking people to “see if you recognize the phrasing of the letter, the envelope label or any other clue you think might help investigators.”
The letter contained a suspicious powder like most of the others. It warned, “What you just breathed in will kill you in 10 days.”
The powder in the letters has tested negative for toxins and appears harmless, according to the FBI.
The letters have been sent to Chase bank branches in 11 states since Monday and to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., an independent federal agency, and the U.S. Office of Thrift Supervision, which regulates all federal and many state thrift institutions.
