Community State Bank, N.A., Ankeny, Iowa, contacted the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) to report that counterfeit cashier's checks bearing the institution's name are in circulation.
The counterfeit items display the routing number 073910114, which is assigned to Community State Bank. The counterfeit items also display the previous bank logo of an umbrella over the bank's name, with the letters CSB listed vertically inside a shaded box. The counterfeit checks display this logo in the top-center portion of the check. Beneath the logo, the phrase "A financial services company" appears.
Authentic cashier's checks display the bank's name in the top-center portion of the check, directly below the bank's underlined logo of "csb." This current logo does not include an umbrella. A red thermo-sensitive padlock is contained on the back of authentic checks. By placing your finger over the padlock, body heat will alter the padlock's appearance.
