My Mom told me two years ago that her husband had recieved a number of calls from the FBI here in Canada telling him that he is on America's Most Wanted Terroris list.

They kept getting his name wrong. They called him and asked if he was "Hassan El So and So".
"No, I am not. I am Hassan Al Such and Such"

He's from Egypt. He is Muslim. Not practicing. Just a cultural Muslim really. Muslim enough to be getting these calls.

This started happening a long time ago. I've actually been afraid to talk about it. Probably more than two years ago now. I think it started in 2001.

A while ago, my Mom's husband tried to go to Money Mart to cash a cheque. Money Mart -- not the FBI, Money Mart told him that he was on America's Most Wanted Terrorist list. This time, the names matched up.

Can you imagine finding out that you're on America's Most Wanted Terrorist list from Money Mart?
