Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello. I will help you today. I have been an attorney for 27 years. I am reviewing your question and will be back to you shortly.
I am going to opt out. This is not a criminal law question about the banks responsibility.
HelloThis is Samuel. Unfortunately, unless you can prove the bank knew or should have known it was a forged signature, then the bank is not going to be liable. You will need to file criminal charges for the forgery and then the court can order her to repay the estate as part of a criminal penalty.But if you can prove the bank knew or should have known the documents were forged then there is no recourse against the bank.
