Once more: 'Do NOT talk to the EffingBI agents.

No matter how friendly they act.'
It might seem there is no harm done when FBI agents persuade or cajole people to confess to crimes. But there is a long record of law enforcement officers coaxing false confessions out of people. A study of exonerations in the United States between 1989 and 2004 found that 15 percent of the people who were exonerated had confessed to crimes they did not actually commit. And there is an equally long and disreputable record of the government incarcerating people for a far longer time than their confessions would justify.
And, bluntly, considering what's come out about about the EffingBI the last few years, why would you trust them?

This seems to go for cops in general as well; once again I will throw this in
