I created multiple accounts for a website on order to use

I created multiple accounts for a website on order to use the promotion more than once. Those accounts have been suspended-I'm very concerned because the representative I spoke with from the website said that it is essentially fraud. Am I going to jail?

An ex-partner of mine, who is MIA right now, had withdrawn

An ex-partner of mine, who is MIA right now, had withdrawn $19,000 six months ago out of the business account I'm part of - told me that it was for hospital expenses, but I found out that this ex-partner had purchased a house with this money.I have documentation to show that I'm a partner in the company. However, I haven't had any authority over the bank accounts. Is this considered theft? Would this be a civil case or a criminal case? This happened in Aurora, Colorado.

7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud

7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud scam on criaglist, two Attorneys one said shes looking at time the other said its BS and he can fight it. I feel like we are getting different advice every time we seek information. I mean how can a Judge put someone away who is a victim herself. She had no idea the check was stolen but the guy who gave her the check is no where to be found. Do cases like this happen offten ? Do people go away for being scammed themselves ? They charged her with bank fraud, forgery, grand theft, identify fraud etc her biggest mistake was maybe being dumb for trusting this guy and not asking the right questions. I mean the check was cashed at her own bank if she knew it was stolen her own personl bank would not be her choice to fund it. I am at a loss here

My daughters ex-boyfriend stole several of my blank checks

My daughters ex-boyfriend stole several of my blank checks from my checking account out of my house along with some personal items. This is while they were together. He also knew the pin code to my daughters atm card. We both bank at Chase. Because I am single and don't make a lot of purchases, I don't look at my checking account online, except when i plan to make big purchases. Starting about 7/10/15, my daughter's now ex -boyfriend, wrote 20 checks from my account. He wrote all of them to my daughter and forged both of our names. To cash them, he would take her atm card when she was not looking or was sleeping and go to the atm and deposit the check into my daughter's account and then withdraw the money. When i went online on 7/30/15 and saw that i had almost $5,000.00 missing from my account, the banker pulled up all the forged checks that had my daughter's name on them. He called the Chase Bank Fraud Protection department and had me talk to a claims rep on the other end. One of the questions she asked me was why do you think your daughter stole from you? My mind was racing, I was still in shock seeing her name all over the checks and all I could think to say was that she was in the hospital in May for depression but I thought she was doing better . The claims representative said she would take 10 business days to review all of the information before I would hear anything. When I was able to reach my daughter, she was just as upset as I was because she tbought the guy she liked was a good person and also because she knows how physically hard I work for my money. I called the claims department back but they did not want to hear my new information. I got a letter from them after the 10 business days stating that i would not get any of my funds returned to me. I called them and asked why and they said because it's my fault for leaving checks anywhere for my daughter to find them, since she had mental health issues. I told the claims specialist that I called and reported that i found out it wasn't my daughter but her boyfriend and they said they only go by the first conversation you have with them and nothing else and it's still my fault for not having them locked up from my daughter. I am doing the obvious and pressing charges against her ex-boyfriend but is there anything I can do to get my money back from Chase? I feel they were more negligent than I was. Our signatures were not even close and on a couple of checks I started to write but didn't finish but drew lines through, he still was able to cash.

I am an American living in an east european country. I have

I am an American living in an east european country. I have a sizable monthly income from my own business that gets directed deposited into my bank account here. I want to get a mortgage, with is more difficult for foreign nationals than for local citizens. I found a mortgage broker who helps foreigners. His mechanism would be for me to create an employment contract and pay stubs that match my deposits, to make it look like the money I earn is paid as a salary as opposed to self-employment.I know you cannot answer this question in terms of foreign law, but I am curious to the answer if I were to do something similar in the U.S. On one level, the money I am earning is real and much, much more than justifies the mortgage I am applying for. But I believe the fabrication of documents would constitute bank fraud under U.S. law. So here is my question. Assuming I did something like this in the U.S., and was approved for a mortgage, and made all my payments, I am thinking the likelihood of having problems would be low. Only if I defaulted on the loan would the bank be likely to have a reason to look further and go after me. I may be entirely wrong. So I am trying to assess my risk. Would like a U.S. criminal attorney perspective. Thank you.

I am disabled and have been receicing benefits and

I am disabled and have been receicing benefits for myself and my son. When he turned 18 years old the checks were written out for my son. He was still living at home and going to high school. When the checks arrived I wrote deposit only on the check and placed the money in my joint account with my son. I would then transfer the money into my joint account with my husband. My son was aware of this because he was still living at home and attending high school and we were still supporting him. The most recent check on February 3 he endorsed the check "payable to (my name) and endorsed it" He then decided to keep the check and move out of our home and signed it. He is now threatening me with bank fraud. Did I commit bank fraud?
