SPECIAL ALERT


TO: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
SUBJECT: Audi Bank N. A. - Fictitious Cashier's Checks

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has learned that fictitious cashier's checks are in circulation. The checks bear the name Audi Bank N. A., 19 East 54th Street, New York, New York 10022. Audi Bank N. A. does not exist. However, Bank Audi (USA), a legitimate bank, is located at that address. The routing number used on the checks, 021200957, is assigned to the Commerce Bank/North, Ramsey, New Jersey. The account number, 03771407, does not appear to be a valid number. Copies of two of the fictitious checks are attached for your information.

Any information you have about this matter should be brought to the attention of:
