Here is your Wednesday PSA - According to the Iowa Auto Dealers Association, there has been a rash of counterfeit cashier's checks being presented to dealerships in Iowa. In this situation, the buyer presents a cashier's check for the purchase of a vehicle, but the financial institution who "issued" the check is closed for business for the day, so the dealer can't confirm the authenticity of the check. By the time the dealer can check on it, the buyer is long gone with a car and the dealer is stuck with a bad check.

This information can be helpful for everybody out there accepting payments for services/products.

What you should look for -
*While it depends on the lending institution, many real cashier's check have some type of security instrument printed on them, whether it is a heat sensitive stamp, security thread, color shifting ink, mirrored image or watermark. Some of the fake ones will be missing security instruments.
*Look for spelling mistakes.
*Look at the dealership name - it should be printed, not written in.
*See if the address and/or phone number of the lending institution is missing.
*Determine if the amount of the check is the actual amount needed or is different than your contractual documents.
*Credit Union checks would have a NCUA stamp on them for National Credit Union Association.
*The only way to guarantee the check is not forged is to call the issuing lending institution. Remember the risk you take if it is too late to call the lender.

Be careful out there folks. We hope this helps you!
