Counterfeit checks with CUs name circulating
NEW YORK (6/2/08)--Municipal CU, New York City, has contacted the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) to report that counterfeit checks bearing the credit union’s name are in circulation. The counterfeit checks display the routing number 044000804, which is assigned to JP Morgan Chase Bank in Columbus, Ohio. Municipal CU official checks are issued by Integrated Payment Systems Inc. through an account at JP Morgan Chase Bank. The counterfeit items are similar to authentic checks--but the counterfeit checks are a solid green color instead of a two-tone green. Authentic checks have a telephone number printed on the back. Counterfeit checks do not. Information regarding the counterfeit checks should be sent to Michael Rosano, senior manager, security and fraud department, Municipal CU.
