First Federal Bank, F.S.B., Kansas City, Missouri, 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 301071592, which is assigned to First Federal Bank, F.S.B. The items are markedly dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks. A border is shown on all four sides. A security feature statement is shown below the top border and vertically along the right side. The written dollar amount is contained within a rectangle. The word "MEMO" is in the lower-left corner.

Authentic cashier's checks are blue and have the words "CASHIERS CHECK" centered inside a rectangle with rounded corners in the top-center area. The word "Remitter" and a "NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS" are in the lower-left corner. The words "Authorized Signature" appear below the signature line 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.
