Please note that over the past several months, we have been made aware of many checks like this (often initiated as a result of various e-commerce transactions) and they are ALL fraudulent. They were not issued by NYIT nor will they be cashed by our bank, which maintains strict internal controls on all NYIT accounts. NYIT has responded to numerous inquiries about these fraudulent and/or forged checks, and is working with the appropriate law enforcement authorities to stop the fraudulent activity.
