State Bank, La Grange, Texas, has contacted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to report that counterfeit checks bearing the institution's name are in circulation.
The counterfeit items display the routing number 113104521, which
is assigned to State Bank, and are dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks in
style and format. The border surrounding the counterfeit item is different
than the border on the authentic check. Authentic checks display the bank's
logo of a partial star inside a tilted box, placed between the words "State" and "Bank" in
the top-center portion of the check; the counterfeit items do not display
a logo. The words "cashier's check" are in the upper-right
corner of an authentic check; the counterfeit item displays the wording
in the top-center portion of the check. A copy of a counterfeit item and
an authentic cashier's check (VOID) are attached for your review.
