Liberty Bank and Trust Company, New Orleans, Louisiana, has contacted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to report that counterfeit cashier's checks bearing the institution's name are in circulation.

The counterfeit items display the routing number 065002108, which is assigned to Liberty Bank and Trust Company. The items are dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks. A security feature statement is embedded within a darkened top border and along the bottom border between two padlock icons. The signature is shown inside of a darkened rectangle in the lower-right corner and a "VOID" background is shown when copied.

Authentic cashier's checks are light blue with a basket-weave background. Checks have an ornate border on all sides and are perforated along the left side. The numerical amount is shown inside of a darkened rectangle. Two signatures lines are in the lower-right corner.

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.
