The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has been informed that an entity
calling itself Banc of Omaha purports to be a lender specializing in business
capital. Banc of Omaha is not a licensed or chartered bank but is using a logo
similar to that of Mutual of Omaha Bank, which is a chartered financial institution
regulated by the OCC.

Business owners and consumers (who may not be business owners) are receiving letters
by fax and mail stating that their company has been approved for up to $250,000 in
working capital. The letter pressures the recipient to respond by a deadline because
of limited funds. The correspondence is signed by Sam Thomas and includes a
telephone number of (800) 706-7712 and a website address of [].
When the telephone number is dialed, an automated recording announces itself as Banc
of Omaha; however, the individual who then answers the line provides the names of
“Business Services” and “U.S. Business Capital.” No physical addresses are available
for these entities.

attention may be forwarded to:
