Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for your question.
Have you filed a police report yet?
You cannot be convicted without proof that you intended to defraud the bank. I agree, you are a victim and not a criminal.
Still, it is never a good idea to speak with the police without having your own attorney present.
Your bank seems to have been negligent in honoring the fraudulent wire transfers and I suggest that you consult an attorney about suing the bank to recover the funds you lost because of the bank's negligence and the fraud by the Uncle.
You can get a free consultation from some of the banking attorneys listed by location here.
Please follow up on this with a local attorney.
I hope this information is helpful.
Getting an attorney does not make you look guilty, it makes you look cautious and smart.
