Legal Question

Asked on: 5/26/13, 1:17 am

I received 2 separate checks sent Fed - Express and was able to cash one and open a checking account at Wells -Fargo. I went to cash the other check at a Chase bank and was told it was a fraudelent check. Now my account at Wells-Fargo is frozen, and they keep calling me and say they want to talk with me. I have not gone in to talk to them for fear that they will think I made these checks and have me arrested. I have no knowledge of where these checks came from. When I received them I was elated thinking luck was finally on my side, and didn't care who or where they came from, and proceeded to cash them. Now I beleive I am in a world of trouble of which I had nothing or any participation in the making of these checks, only that I was foolish enough not to care where they came from and tried ( and succeeded with one ) to cash them. I apologize for the lenght of this inquire but, I feel I need to tell as much as possible to get someone to help me or advise me on what to do. ***** Do I have any rights when I go talk to the bank? I am out of work and do not have money for a lawyer. And is Wells-Fargo liable for anything I am going through or will likely be going through being the fact that they cash the one check and gave me a account and debit card? **** I can't help but think I am going to go to jail for something I had no prior knowledge about. Please help me. I am totally stressing about this. Thank-you. Robert Reyes
