The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) is distributing copies of recent OCC Alerts issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and one Financial Institution Letter (FIL) issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. These documents contain information that may prevent your institution from suffering a financial loss.

OCC Alerts 98-11 through 98-17 identify entities that may be involved in suspicious transactions or may be operating an unauthorized banking business in the United States. Also, FIL 34-98 identifies stolen drafts and counterfeit cashier’s checks. The OCC Alerts and the FIL include contact numbers and addresses should you have any information regarding these transactions and entities. This memorandum complements similar OCC Alerts, FILs, and other information previously distributed by the FCA to Farm Credit System institutions and should be retained for reference.

If you have any questions regarding this document or similar previous documents, please call Thomas J. Holland, Director, Special Examination and Supervision Division, Office of Examination, at (703) 883-4483, or on the Internet at e-mail address
