S&T Bank, Indiana, Pennsylvania, has contacted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to report that counterfeit treasurer's checks bearing the institution's name are in circulation. The items are reportedly associated with a lottery scam.

The counterfeit items display the routing number 043306855, which is assigned to S&T Bank, but are dissimilar to authentic treasurer's checks. The counterfeit items show the numerical dollar amount inside of a rectangle on the right side, and have a "VOID" background when copied.

Authentic checks display a security feature statement directly below the written dollar amount line and a security padlock and statement following the word "DOLLARS."

Copies of a counterfeit item and an authentic check (VOID) are attached for your review. Be aware that the appearance of counterfeit items can be modified and that additional variations may be presented.

To validate checks, please contact the S&T Bank Call Center at (800) 325-2265. Any other information you have concerning this matter should be brought to the attention of:
