Beware - false bank account


March 4, 1999

To National and International Civil Society:
To All Users of the Internet:

First.- Since March 3, 1999, there has been circulating on the internet an apocryphal communique calling upon civil society to make deposits for the EZLN's Consultation, but giving a bank account number that, in reality, corresponds to the association "Friends of Vicente Fox A.C./Coalition."

Second.- In an deception attempt to appear authentic, this apocryphal communique is made up of text taken from actual EZLN communiques mixed with calls to participate in a supposed coalition for the year 2000, is signed by a fake "Comité Organizador de la Consulta Nacional," and arrives as if it came from the Oficina de Contacto para la Consulta del EZLN.

Third.- The authentic bank account number for making deposits to support the Consultation is:

Bancomer. Cuenta Maestra Número 5001060-5, Plaza 437. San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, México. In the name of Rosario Ibarra de Piedra.

Fourth.- We are alerting national and international public opinion and the cybernauts of Mexico and the world, so that they do not fall for these tricks that are only trying to destroy the initiative of peace put forth by the EZLN.
