San Angelo National Bank, San Angelo, 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 111306871, which
is assigned to San Angelo National Bank. The counterfeit items are
very dissimilar to
authentic cashier's checks in style, font and format. Authentic checks
display the wording "Cashier's Check" in the bottom-left
portion of the check, while the counterfeit items display the wording
across the left side of the check. Authentic checks also display the
logo of offset
rectangles adjacent to the bank's name. Directly beneath the bank's
name, San Angelo's Bank appears in a box. The counterfeit items display
a logo consisting of an outline of the United States inside of an oval.
In the top-left corner of the counterfeit items is a notice to customers.
A copy of a counterfeit item and an authentic cashier's check (VOID)
are attached for your review.
