**Counterfeit Great River Federal Credit Union Corporate/Cashier’s Checks**

Dear Members, 

We were recently made aware that counterfeit corporate/cashier’s checks supposedly issued by Great River Federal Credit Union and other financial institutions are in circulation across the United States and in the local area. 


The letter and checks are mailed by scammers to people telling them they have won the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes. The check is made out for several thousand dollars and requests that the recipient keep the winnings confidential.  The letter notifies the ‘winner’ that they are required by law to pay customs, taxes and processing fees. 



If the ‘winner’ wires the money as instructed, he or she will lose that money when the counterfeit check is returned unpaid and will be liable for the entire amount of the fraudulent check.



We value our members and our top priority is your financial security. Contact Great River Federal Credit Union at 320-252-5393 or 1-888-211-5393 to verify the legitimacy if you receive one of these checks.
