  • Version #1
    • The checks contain a light blue marbled background.
    • The following security statement is located within a dark top border: “TO VERIFY AUTHENTICIY, SEE REVERSE SIDE FOR DESCRIPTION OF THE 13 SECURITY FEATURES.”
    • The bank’s address located beneath the bank’s logo in the top-left corner is void of punctuation between the suite number and city.
    • A heat-sensitive security feature is located in the bottom-center portion of the checks.
  • Version #2
    • The checks contain a light blue background.
    • The following security statement is located within a darker blue top border: “WARNING: THIS DOCUMENT HAS SECURITY FEATURES IN THE PAPER.”
    • A security padlock icon and statement appear in the right border of the checks.

Counterfeit checks presented to date have been made payable in amounts between $1,480 and $8,800, and contain remitter names of Donald Adams, Paul Burrigt, Jessica Fonseca, James Foster, Chris Harding, Jerry Lambert, Jeanette Maldonado, Henry Malls, and Mark Williams.
