Hanvit Bank/royal Link Financial — Fake Cashiers Check
I recieved a letter from "Royal Link Financial" they claimed I won a Canadian Lottery. They sent along a "Cashiers Check" in the amount of $3900.00. They claimed this was to cover the cost of "taxes" and the rest would be released as soon as I contacted Michael Smith or Joyce Edward at the number they included. And they would help to release the rest of the money as soon as I contaced them.
I searched http://www2.fdic.gov/idasp/main_bankfind.asp and found that on 1/27/1984 Institution established. Original name: Korea Commercial Bank Of New York (24920)
2) 1/4/1999 Changed name to Hanvit America Bank (24920).
3) 5/20/2002 Changed name to Woori America Bank (24920).
4) 5/20/2002 Moved bank headquarters from New York City, New York to New York, New York.
5) 9/12/2003 Acquired Panasia Bank, National Association (33791) in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
6 )12/5/2005 Acquired South Coast Commercial Bank (26015) in Irvine, California.
So it doesn't even appear that Hanvit Bank even exits, and Hanvit America Bank had there named changed in 2002!
I recieved this cashier's check in November 2008!
