DSS: Contractors Beware of Canadian Coins

This is an odd story, but apparently 100% true. Those pesky Canadians have been slipping coins with tiny radio transmitters hidden inside in the pants of U.S. contractors visiting the country. I’m not entirely sure how contractors would be singled out specifically, but that’s beside the point. The Defense Security Service issued the warning yesterday.

On three occasions between October 2005 and January 2006, U.S. defense contractors with security clearance travelling in Canada were targeted. Naturally, the Canadian intelligence agency claims they have no knowledge of the coins.

    The DSS ended up saying this was a hoax of some sort. Definitely not real.
