Customer Question

Hello I inherited $100,000 a few years back being young and dumb I cashed the check my lawyer gave me and kept the money in a safe in my home.. A few months back I wanted to buy a house so I deposited about 60,000 into my bank account in increments 0f $7,000 over the course of a few months. One night 2 officers from the D.O.J came to my home and said they recived a report of me making suspicious deposits.. I provided the officers with proof of where the funds originated and was cleared of any wrond doing. I work as a correctional officer and must report any contact I have with law enforcement to my boss. Needless to say he was a bit shocked and I feel he never looked at me the same. I decied to leave that job and that town. I applied to another jail and recived a conditional offer of employment but after I explained to them I was recently investigated by the D.O.J they rescinded the offer! I feel the bank had no right to report me to the D.O.J and I also feel like the amount I deposited wasnt significant enought to trigger an investigation. I know other people who deposit larger amounts without a problem. I feel I have suffered needlessly.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
