The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has reported that worthless instruments bearing the name The United Cities Corp., Miami, Florida, and drawn on TUC Private Currency Office are in circulation. The checks reflect an invalid ABA routing number of 079457847.
The checks display the following address:
3501 West Vine Street
The instruments have been presented for deposit at a number of U.S. banks. As the checks do not contain necessary information to collect the funds, the items should not be accepted for payment or deposit. If one of these checks is obtained, you should not attempt to negotiate the check, but should contact your local United States Secret Service office.
Information about counterfeit items, cyber-fraud incidents and other fraudulent activity may be forwarded to the FDIC's Cyber-Fraud and Financial Crimes Section, 550 17th Street, N.W., Room F-4004, Washington, D.C. 20429, or transmitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
