(Newser) – A flurry of letters threatening the life of JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, as well as an Oklahoma City-style bombing of a bank facility, are being investigated by the Postal Investigation Service. ABC News reports a $100,000 reward has been posted for information about the 45-plus letters, all postmarked last week in Amarillo, Texas.

"You need to be pay back. You will be killed in 10 days," reads one of the typewritten letters sent to Dimon, according to feds. The letters were sent to several Chase offices and government agencies and contained a powdery substance that has proven harmless.
