‘Bank Transfer Day’ Protest Attracts Massive Facebook Following, As Well As “Bank Trolls”
http://readersupportednews.org/news-section2/320-80/790...

Here's the interesting bit:

"Several corporate-level banking institutions have sent 'trolls' to discourage the movement through the event page, including JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Merrill Lynch," Christian wrote to TPM in an email. "I've encouraged all supporters to respond civilly to these bank employees."

As proof, Christian provided TPM with screenshots of a wall post from a woman who's LinkedIn profile indicates she is a "Teller Ops Specialist" at Bank of America.

TPM has contacted the woman and will update when we receive a response.

"When 'trolls' have been confronted regarding their employment with a corporate banking institution, their posts & profiles have mysteriously disappeared," Christian told TPM.

So the banks are spending money for online sock puppets?

10. I further predict that people who try to remove all their funds
will have their money mysteriously disappeared through
some compute glitch that the banks will blame on "an anonymous hacker"

15. Of course they are. The trolls perusing the lefty blogs are paid operatives as well.
That is a typical right wing tactic. They can never win people over organically, it must always be a manufactured illusion.
