Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
He is going to have to prove you stole the money before worrying about going to jail.
he claims that the reciepts can prove it but my name is XXXXX XXXXX the reciepts its somebody else name on them but it is my log in number
I think he is going to have a hard time proving it.
If you get contacted by the police you will want to hire a lawyer and definitely do not talk to them.
he called threating me to write a letter saying how i am gonna pay him back but i am not gonna admit to nothing i didnt do we barely have 6 customers in a 12 hour day so how in the world can he have 6000 dollars stole from him
He may just be trying to extort money from you. Don't talk to him or interact with him. Go and talk to a lawyer and hire him to send a letter threatening a slander suit.
can the police come and just arrest me on his accusations is what i need to know
Yes, they can get a warrant for you just on his accusations. They usually investigate first, but they don't always.
wow so i need to find me a lawyer fast huh
ok thanks i will do that now i hope i can get out of this and i am gonna sue him for slander
Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) so I get credit for my work.
