Dear Mr. Bomber

Credit card solicitation letter addressed to "Palestinian Bomber."

"Palestinian-American Sami Habbas couldn't believe what he saw while sifting through his mail earlier this month.
A Chase Card Services solicitation letter sent to his Corona home was addressed to him not by name but as 'Palestinian Bomber' on the envelope and twice within the letter.

When he called the company's toll-free number and provided his invitation number from the form, two operators addressed Habbas in similar ways.

'Yes, Mr. Bomber, what can I do for you?'

For the 54-year-old Habbas, who has lived in the United States since he was 3 and served in the U.S. Army, the incident was disturbing, to say the least."
