Wall-based bank issues alert to stop potential fraud.If you have a check drawn on a Manasquan Savings Bank account, it could be fake, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
The Wall-based institution told the FDIC that counterfeit official checks bearing the bankÂs name are floating around.
The bogus drafts display the routing number 011007092, which actually belongs to the Bank of New York Mellon, in Everett, Mass. Manasquan Bank said it issues official checks through Moneygram Payment Systems Inc., in Minneapolis, payable through the Bank of New York Mellon. Authentic checks are light blue, according to the FDIC, and Manasquan Savings BankÂs telephone number is displayed below its logo, name and address.
