Counterfeit checks drawn on Members Exchange CU
JACKSON, Miss. (5/30/08)--A series of counterfeit teller checks drawn on a Jackson, Miss.-based credit union is circulating in several states, according to the Mississippi Credit Union Association. The checks are drawn on Member's Exchange CU, a $48 million asset credit union. "Scam letters were mailed, along with a counterfeit check, to 'lucky' individuals throughout the country," said Sonny Green, vice president of the association. The checks are for $4,965 and closely mimic MECU's regular teller checks. The routing number, account number and check sequence are valid. However, the logo, while similar, does not exactly match MECU's logo. The word "CERTIFIED" appears as if it was typed on the check by a typewriter. All the checks are signed by the same person, Daniel L. Molinaro. The address on the check is correct, but no phone number is listed. So far, individuals in Kentucky, Arizona and Ohio have contacted MECU about receiving the checks.
