The Conway National Bank, Conway, South Carolina, has contacted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to report that counterfeit checks bearing the institution 's name are in circulation.
The counterfeit items display the routing number 053202318, which is assigned to The Conway National Bank; however, the counterfeit items are dissimilar to authentic cashier's checks in appearance. On the counterfeit items, "THE CONWAY NATIONAL BANK, CONWAY, SC" is printed in the top center on two lines above a toll-free telephone number that is not associated with the bank. "DATE DAY MO. YEAR" and "PAY DOLLARS CENTS" are printed in the center along with the numeric dollar amount inside of a solid rectangle. "CNB" is printed above a small logo next to the bank name in the top-left corner above the words "CASHIER'S CHECK." The counterfeit items are printed on multi-colored paper that fades from light green to light brown.
Authentic cashier's checks display the words "CASHIER'S CHECK" inside of a two-tone rectangle located in the top center. The bank's logo and name are printed on several lines in the top-left corner above the phrases "Serving Our Community Since 1903, Conway, South Carolina" and "Member FDIC." No telephone number is displayed. Authentic checks are printed on white paper with light-green wavy lines in the background.
Copies of a counterfeit item and an authentic cashier's check (VOID) are attached for your review.
