FDIC again warning banks about fake cashiers' checks

This alert recalls the blog entry I wrote several months back about how commercial banks are not giving tellers adequate training to identify these fake checks and to protect their customers from being defrauded. If anyone has heard about a customer losing money by depositing a fake cashier’s check, write me at steve@lubetkin.net or post a comment to this blog.
Eight Counterfeit Checks And Money Orders Special Alerts Issued
Eight Special Alerts have been issued by the FDIC regarding counterfeit cashier’s checks drawn on White Oak State Bank, White Oak, Texas, Newtown Savings Bank, Newtown, Connecticut, and Waldo State Bank, Waldo, Wisconsin; counterfeit official checks drawn on HomeStreet Bank, Seattle, Washington, and Cathay Bank, Los Angeles, California; counterfeit checks drawn on NCB, FSB, Hillsboro, Ohio; counterfeit treasurer’s checks drawn on Laconia Savings Bank, Laconia, New Hampshire; and counterfeit money orders drawn on Shell Lake State Bank, Shell Lake, Wisconsin.
