Unfortunately, they can prosecute you for this, but in order to convict you they have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you knew or should have known that this was a fraud. Many times they will file the election of proceedings to secure your testimony against the real perpetrator, but now you are forced to obtain an attorney to represent you and you should NOT make any statements to any law enforcement agents or the US Attorney without one. If you can show you had no intent or knowledge of this fraud, your attorney will meet with the US attorney and negotiate with them to dismiss any charges in this matter based on that evidence of your lack of knowledge and intent.
