Earlier today, a "suspicious package" arrived at a midtown bank. The building was evacuated and a bomb squad called to the scene. What was the cause of all that fuss?

New York City police say a suspicious letter sent to a midtown Manhattan bank turned out to be a greeting card from a headhunting firm. Police say the envelope sent to the Hapoalim Bank, an Israeli commercial bank, was suspicious because an X-ray detected wires and a battery. The bank near Rockefeller Center was evacuated as a precaution and the bomb squad was called. Police say the letter was a recordable greeting card sent to the bank.
