The signatures are correct on the note itself, but the holder includes wrong information.

Always remember when you're buying a TPG'd note: buy the note, not the holder. That same wisdom extends to reading what's on the note as the holder can be wrong (as is the case here).

Here's another PMG error.

[edit]Wrong prefix noted on PMG holder. Also, re-uploaded image to remove personally identifiable information. --BWJM[/edit]

Oops sorry!

Is it just a harmless prefix-kix or do I live for that next prefix-fix?
