America Warns Of Transmitters In Canadian Coins

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007 at 12:42 by Matt Rhodes

It may sound like a hoax, but the U.S government has issued a report about a new espionage threat - Canadian coins with transmitters hidden inside.

The coins were found in the pockets of a number of U.S military contractors, all of whom have high security clearance. They are thought to have appeared there while the contractors travelled through Canada sometime between October 2005 and January 2006.

Most of the details surrounding the case are secret. Not even the values of the currency being used to carry the transmitters are known.  Martha Deutscher a spokeswoman for the U.S security service said: ‘What’s in the report is true.’ It is also believed that the range of the coins would be incredibly limited.

Suspect countries include, China, Russia and best of all France. Canada itself claims to know nothing about the incident. David Harris the former chief of strategic planning for the Canadian Security Intelligent Service believes the likely candidates would include foreign spies, probably engaged in corporate espionage.

The CIA have admitted its own spies have used hollow, U.S silver-dollar coins to hide messages and film in the past.

The 29 page report includes other spy threats, from listening devices in pens (ace!) to the case of a sexy foreign female agent who seduced her American boyfriend to steal his computer passwords (Flemingtastic!).
