RE:
Curtis Corbett and Robyn Corbett

Dear Associates:

Please be advised to do no transactions with the individuals identified above without first obtaining written approval from underwriting counsel. The reason for this Alert is that the individuals passed a forged instrument which was reported to be an "Official Check" issued by Wachovia Bank out of Greensboro in a North Carolina office. Curtis presented a State Issued Identification Card from Virginia, which appears also to be a forged instrument. The check in question was for $322,000. This was for the cash purchase of a residence in the Orlando area and the Agent is taking the matter to the criminal authorities as well.
