Counterfeit items closely resemble the bank's authentic cashier's checks but may be identified by the following: The counterfeit checks are darker green in color, do not include the bank's toll-free telephone number of (800) 639-5111, and include the word “document” in the security statement located along the top border of the instrument. Items presented to date have been made payable in varying amounts but more commonly $1,950, $2,700, and $2,780. The items also include a remitter name of either Andrea Giddons or Kim L. Scott.
