I have been charged with "theft by deception" because I used

Customer Question

I have been charged with "theft by deception" because I used a bank account I wadnt authorized to use". However I was authorized to use the account. In fact, I have a signed, dated authorization specifically for the account in question. They lied, they said in an avidavit that I took the banking info(acct, routing #) off a check in their office. We presented the signed authorization. Most they r saying that I had authorization but not for the charges made. Why isn't this case dropped. The whole premise was "authorization"

Good morning. What was actually charged which created this problem? What was your scope and role in using the bank account? I am just trying to get an idea of why they are going after you for this?
