WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has alerted financial institutions to counterfeit official checks from Century Bank, NA of Texarkana, Texas, and Park National Bank of Newark, Ohio.

In the Century case, the checks are being presented for payment nationwide in connection with a lottery scam. The checks include the correct routing number, but may be green or tan in color with white flecks and contain a tan/brown border. In addition, the counterfeit items contain a security statement within the top border of the item. They may contain a remitter name of Henry Grant, be payable in the amount of $4,600, and display the date of 10/10/06. Accompanying correspondence may contain the letterhead of “Universal Securities and Payment Verification Center, 4777 Sherbrooke, Ottawa, Ont. H3X2B7″ and signed by Nathan Goldberg.
