Bank of America reportedly sent out a memo today to employees warning about an investigation into a tuberculosis outbreak at the bank’s shiny new building near Bryant Park. Our friends at DealBreaker received a copy of the memo, which looks like it was taken with a camera phone.
(Hey! That’s a good idea. Email us your camera phone pictures of any memos to([email protected]) or send them directly to 646-526-3327.)
The picture is a bit dark and grainy, so we had our non-disease ridden associates transcribe it.
