Subject: Memorandum Advising of Suspicious Transactions

The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) is distributing copies of recent OCC Alerts issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). These documents contain information that may prevent your institution from suffering a financial loss.

OCC Alert 98-18 identifies stolen U.S. Treasury checks, and Alert 98-19 identifies Letter of Guarantee instruments issued by the Government of Grenada, W.I., that have been questioned. The OCC Alerts include contact numbers and addresses should you have any information regarding these transactions. This memorandum complements similar OCC Alerts and other information previously distributed by the FCA to Farm Credit System institutions and should be retained for reference.

FCA is providing this information as a courtesy to keep you informed of developments that may impact your institution. However, these mailings should not be seen as a replacement for, but as a complement to, due diligence in monitoring issues that may affect your institution. 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
