I'll just cut and paste the same answer you got before --

"You did not have a job and there was no employer and no client. You were part of an old criminal scam that, frankly, should have been obvious. That is the harsh truth. The bank dealt with you and you only, and you set up the account, deposited money, and then withdrew money, so they will look to you to pay it back. They have no relationship with anyone else."

You should also read other responses to your first question. There was no job, no employer, etc. You were part of a scam (whether or not you knew it).

Posting the same question over and over does not change the answer. To repeat the answer you got the last time (why have you still not repaid the bank and gotten a lawyer?):


You never had a job and feel for a common and frankly very obvious scam. You will have to pay the bank, and you need to do that right away, in full. If you are criminally charged, and the fact the police are involved says that is likely you could face arrest, so get a criminal lawyer and stop talking to the police.
