The above-named bank has reported that counterfeit cashier’s checks using a correct routing number of 066016766 are being presented for payment nationwide in connection with a secret shopper scam.


While the counterfeit checks resemble the bank’s authentic items, counterfeit items may be identified by several traits. Counterfeit checks do not contain any type of border; they do contain, however, the following security statement in the top portion of the check: “WARNING: THIS DOCUMENT HAS SECURITY FEATURES IN THE PAPER.” A security padlock icon is also visible on the right-hand edge of the check.


Counterfeit checks presented to date have been made payable in the amounts of $1,976 or $3,380 and include a remitter name of either Ryan Plat or Robert Harrison.


Correspondence accompanying the counterfeit checks contains the letterhead of “coraci market research, 2010 E. Randol Mill Rd, #602, Arlington, TX 76011 (571) 358-9159.” The letter informs the recipients that they have been selected for “Secret Survey” assignments. The recipients are instructed to deposit the counterfeit checks into their bank accounts using their banks’ automatic teller machines. They are further instructed to withdraw the funds after 24 hours, use the majority of the funds to purchase Green Dot prepaid cards, and send the 14-digit personal identification numbers on the cards to Ryan Plat at rr.plat@aol.com.
