Counterfeit Cashier's Checks-Providence Federal Credit Union

Several dealers in the State of Washington have been victims of counterfeit cashiers checks issued on the Providence Federal Credit Union out of Seattle Washington. The loss to date is approximately $300,000.

The suspects are a male and female. The female is using a fake California driver’s license in the name of Maria G. Villareal DL #B8645567. The address on the DL shows 1416 N. Edison Blvd Apt C Burbank, CA. The only information on the drivers license that is valid is the females photo. The only information on the male suspect is that he is going by the name of Jeff.

The suspects are purchasing one ounce gold coins and may come in as a couple or separately. They are very convincing and the phone number on the cashier’s check appears to be valid when calling for verification but it is bogus!! A male subject identified as Nathan a supposedly employee of Providence Federal verfies the check however he is part of the scam. These suspects are traveling and may have connections in Las Vegas.

World Coins Stolen

A Fedex shipment containing rare Cypress coins along with 40 other scarce world coins have been reported stolen while being shipped from Athens Greece to Paris.

The rare Cyprus coins are the following: a. Cyprus ¼ Piastre 1880 of Queen Victoria. This coin looks like Proof but we believe that it would have been graded as MS65BN PL according the USA standards or Brown Uncirculated (Prooflike) according to the UK standards. The coin has a mirror surface and brown color both sides which makes it looks proof but we believe it is an early strike. b. Cyprus ½ Piastre 1908 of King Edward VII. We believe that this coin would have been graded as MS63BN or MS64BN according to the USA standards or Brown Uncirculated according to the UK standards. This coin has some red luster on reverse and light brown color both sides. This is the weakly struck variety (King’s portrait on obverse and the line from ½ on reverse are weakly stuck). c. Cyprus Proof set of 3 silver coins dated 1921 of King George V. The coins are 4 ½ Piastres, 9 Piastres and 18 Piastres all dated 1921. These coins have dark grey and blue patina and we believe that they would have been graded as follows: 18 Piastres PF64-65, 9 Piastres PF64-65 and 4 ½ Piastres PF63-64. The 4 ½ Piastres has a few light hairlines from an old cleaning which are under the deep grey and purple patina. All coins have a matching dark grey and blue toning except the 4 ½ Piastres which has also a light purple color mixed with grey.

Other coins stolen include 20 Gem Uncirculated Malaya & British Borneo 20 Cents 1961 of Queen Elizabeth II (MS65-MS67) and 20 modern Greek coins from King Paul I and King Constantine II.
