The above-named bank has reported that counterfeit cashier’s checks issued in the bank’s name are being presented for payment nationwide in connection with an online job opportunity scam.


The counterfeit checks resemble the bank’s authentic checks but can be identified by several features. The counterfeit checks include one of the following security statements in the top border:


“WARNING: THIS DOCUMENT HAS SECURITY FEATURES IN THE PAPER” or “THIS DOCUMENT HAS A COLORED BACKGROUND AND MICROPRINTING. THE REVERSE SIDE INCLUDES AN ARTIFICIAL WATERMARK.” The counterfeit items have a blue marbled background and include one signature line, the date is presented in numbers rather than spelled out, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation logo is missing.


Counterfeit checks presented to date have been made payable in the amount of $2,480 and contain a remitter name of Tommy Castro.


Potential victims are initially contacted via e-mail regarding a work-at-home job offer. Upon receipt of the counterfeit check, recipients are instructed to purchase prepaid cards at a major retail store and provide the security codes to a third-party individual.
