The counterfeit instruments are drawn upon the bank and display the proper routing number of 044015543. However, the counterfeit instruments are markedly different from the authentic official checks. The authentic official checks have a bank logo in the upper left-hand corner of the check that is printed in solid blue, and the check number in the upper right-hand corner of the check is printed in black. Conversely, the bank logo on the counterfeit instruments has red stripes following the blue star, and the check number is printed in red. A copy of an authentic official check (void) and a copy of a counterfeit check are attached for your review.
