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 you or your institution from suffering financial loss.
OCC Alert 97-28 identifies a fictitious cashier’s check drawn on City National Bank of New Jersey. The alert includes a copy of the fictitious instrument as well as a copy of the legitimate cashier’s check. OCC Alert 97-29 identifies checks that are missing and presumed stolen from the Union National Bank. This alert includes a sample copy of the missing checks. Finally, OCC Alert 97-30 identifies an entity that may be operating a banking business without authorization. The OCC Alerts include contact telephone numbers and addresses should you have any information regarding these alerts.
This memorandum complements similar OCC Alerts and other information previously distributed by FCA to Farm Credit System institutions and should be retained for reference.
