The Ozona National Bank, Ozona, Texas, 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 111312182, which is assigned to The Ozona National Bank. The items are dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks. They have a marbled background and rounded corners. The written and numeric dollar amounts are each shown inside of oblong circles. The phrase "TWO SIGNATURES REQUIRED OVER $5,000.00" is in the lower-right corner.

Authentic cashier's checks are beige and have double-framed orange borders. The phrase "TWO SIGNATURES REQUIRED OVER $3,000.00" is in the lower-right corner. A padlock icon is shown at the right end of the second signature line.

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.
