The date stamped on the letter looks very suspect. If it was an official document, the date would have been typed on the letter.
I wouldn’t be too sure about that.
Somewhere in my travels, I’m thinking Uncle Sam’s Flying Circus 30+ years ago, letters were typed, then circulated for proofreading/approvals, etc, which could take several days.
Then, when they were finally ready to be sent the date was stamped on in that manner and away they went.
I ASSume the journalist from Utah called up to verify before running her story.
But if there are reporters here actually looking for a story, go do your job. Call up the USDA and find out if this is for real.
I’m just a dude posting on a public forum. Don’t believe everything you read on the interwebz!
No it doesn’t. Standard way that documents received by the gvt are marked.
Nope, the date stamp makes it look real. If it were typed it would like be fake. The typical US Government agency memo is not dated until it is signed. This is done with a date stamp.
