The counterfeit items are dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks. The counterfeit checks display a logo of a triangle with diagonal stripes, and they do not include the bank's telephone number. The counterfeit items are printed on bank stock paper with a tan background and micro-printing, with a watermark on the reverse side.
Authentic cashier's checks display the bank's logo, which is a triangle containing tree and river shapes, in the top-center portion of the check. Authentic checks also display the bank's telephone number directly beneath "Lake Oswego, Oregon." The checks are multicolored, with a range of peach, yellow and green shades from left to right. Also, authentic checks have a foil strip hologram on the top, a lock symbol to the right of the dollar amount line, and a gray strip at the bottom.
Copies of a counterfeit item and a voided authentic check are attached for your review.
