No, problem. You do not have to leave your real name. I would be happy to answer your question. What is it that you want to know?
I am sorry to hear about what happened. In a situation like this, if you want to try and recover the money which was taken, a police report would need to be made and criminal charges would need to be filed against her. If she were to be found guilty or take a plea deal, the State would obtain restitution for you, so you would be repaid for the money she took. If there is a warrant for her arrest and you know where she is, you can contact the police and have her served with the warrant and taken into custody. Moreover, you can contact the bank and advise them of what she did while working there, if she did not have authorization to take money from his account. If you want to recover the money she stole from you and others, the State can help you, as the victim, since the crime itself is against the State and they will represent your interest. Based upon her actions, she could face jail or prison time along with a probationary sentence.
