The above-named bank has reported that counterfeit cashier’s checks using a correct routing number of 066004367 are being presented for payment nationwide in connection with various Internet-based work-at-home and mystery shopping scams.

The counterfeit checks do not resemble the bank’s authentic checks, and the counterfeit items may be identified by the following traits:

  • The checks contain a blue marbled background with a darker-blue banner.
  • The following security statement appears in the top border of the check: “To verify authenticity, see reverse side for description of the 11 security features.”
  • The bank’s name appears as “City National Bank of Florida.”
  • The words “Pay to the Order of” are typed beneath the payee name.
  • The payable numerical dollar amount is enclosed in a box.
  • The checks contain a fictitious authorized signature of Stanley W. Booth.

Counterfeit checks presented to date have been made payable in amounts between $1,695 and $2,445 and have contained one of the following remitter names: Paul Wood, Dennis Jenkins, or Kenneth Logerquist.

While the scams differ, the premise remains the same. Recipients of the counterfeit checks are instructed to deposit the checks into their bank accounts and then contact an individual related to the purported work-at-home or mystery shopping assignment. The potential victim is then instructed to use the funds of the counterfeit check to either purchase a money order or to wire funds to a third party.
