1)check from his client was made out to me in my name. 2) no check was made out to me, the person i was living with has no identification 3) clients are threatening me with bank fraud they want repayment in full but like i said 1000.00 was given to him, he is denying that i gave him any money.
If the check was made payable to you, then you did not commit any fraud in the cashing of the check.I am baffled as to why the client are saying YOU committed fraud, when their beef is with the man. If the man takes you to court, he has to prove that you did not pay him. The burden is not on you to prove that you did - it comes down to your word against hisI hope that this information is helpful.

the client sent me a text message saying they will be filing papersfor fraudulent misrepresentation on behalf of her parents. she saying she filed thepapers under federal law for "micsconception of fact". she has told me they are going to arrest me tomorrow, she sent that message to me via text message, also my ex. is sending me text threatening me with jail.
did you get the last message i sent you?
i did not have contract with the people but my ex was doing home improvement work for the people that wrote the check. he was doing work under the table for the people. i do not know if he had a contract with the people. my question is they are asking me to pay back the entire sum which i do not have because i gave my ex 1000.00.
did you get my last message sam?
now the customer is saying they cancelled the contract with my. ex. and they are telling me that when i cashed the check for the job then i assumed the contract. they want the money or the work completed. i guess some of the money was needed for materials to finish the job..
how does the court know what this check was for.
is this considered bank fraud?
did you get my last message?
No. It is considered a Breach of Contract. If you knowingly took the money knowing that the work was not completed then it is theft.
