'STOP PAYMENT' AND CASHIER'S CHECKS
|By Tom Wolfe, Managing Partner of Moore Brewer Wolfe Jones Tyler & North

Helpful Guidance for CUs
In August 2012, financial institutions across the country began receiving urgent requests to stop payment on un-cashed cashier’s checks sent to a popular online investment program.
In what turned out to be a $600 million Ponzi scheme, Rex Venture Group, LLC, doing business as ZeekRewards.com, was shut down by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and its more than 1 million customers were left scrambling to recoup their investments.
In recent weeks, court-appointed receivers began issuing demand letters to financial institutions seeking payment on cashier’s checks wrongfully rejected when first presented as a result of "stop payments."
Although the law hasn’t changed, we revisit the issues involved so credit unions can gain a better understanding of the factors surrounding this story and why they are important to know.
