My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

Have you asked them for copies of the cheques and the Trust account statement? I assume it is from their trust account?

The same cheque cannot go into 2 accounts.

Have you also spoken to the banks they are referring to and had them print out statements about the deposits?
