Default Gulf Coast Merchants, verify Cashiers Checks

Watch out for fake Cashiers Checks being used around S Louisiana and Mississippi. Our business was stung last week for $4K and I am aware of another business that got hit by the same guy for twice that much.

What bank were the phony cashiers checks drawn on?

They appeared to be From Regions Bank. I learned the hard way that blank Cashier’s Check can be purchased by anyone then doctored to look official. They have watermarks, fading red emblems and all the same security marks that the ones that banks issue.

Frank Abagnale, Jr. back at it?

Seriously though, I'm very sorry to hear the OP suffered this loss. I've been in the title business for years and we used to accept cashiers checks for large sums to close real estate deals. I get emails from my title underwriters warning of the latest scams going around. I suppose the solution is if a person is willing to go to the bank to have a cashiers check drawn, they might as well send the funds via wire transfer.

I don't do Facebook but Lucedale, MS. PD has a short story about their local dealings. Google search Theodore Charles Lucedale to find the article.
