Re: Birth Bonds.

First of all, go here and read this

Scroll down that page and you’ll see some instructions on how to ‘get a quote’ via fidelity.com.

Operate those instructions accurately (they DO work, and they are absolutely correct!)

When you get the ‘Search Box’ type in the year of your birth, a slash “/”, and your Birth Certificate Number. (Make sure you select MUTUAL FUND and FUND NUMBER)

I did this, and it found an entry. Bearing in mind my Birth Certificate Number and the year (1944) I think the chances of this being an accident are astronomic!

Try it yourself. If it works for at least one other individual then … WE ARE ON TO SOMETHING!

(Don’t ask me ‘what’, though. And don’t ask me what the information Chart means! At the moment, anyway)

Sorry to disappoint, but I this one has been doing the rounds for a while. :cry:
The search ignores everything after the '/' and just returns info on a fund with the number 1962 etc

Yes that was the same when I tried it fredqwerty, it doesn't matter what is after the slash, the same results appear.

Tells you the basics of an obscure fund that some fund geek out there might be interested in reading. Means nothing when it come to BC's or anything. It's just a fund number and its performance for investor geeks.

Yes ... you are right.

I get the same thing by typing in "1944".

(I'm on a friend's machine ... will try just my BC Number when I get home)
