Privately-owned financial house Tatra banka has offered Sk5 million ($105,000) for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for spreading rumours the bank was on the verge of collapse; the rumours, spread electronically and through SMS messages, led to the withdrawal of several hundred million crowns in client deposits.
