Fraudulent Cashier’s Check Notice
Like many businesses, Blackhawk Bank & Trust may be the target of consumer security attacks or become the victim of the unauthorized use of our name and logo as part of a consumer fraud or identity theft crime.
It has come to our institution’s attention (as of March 30, 2016) that a cashier’s check with Blackhawk Bank & Trust’s logo has been distributed to persons in connection with a mystery shopper/consumer protection draw letter, instructing recipients to either “wire”, “send” or “ship” money as soon as possible. BLACKHAWK BANK & TRUST HAS NO CONNECTION WITH THESE ALLEGED DRAWS, AS THEY ARE FRAUDULENT.
