Legal Question

Asked on: 6/04/11, 1:37 pm

I was unknowingly involved in a Western Union fraud scheme, and some stolen funds were transferred into my bank account. I then withdrew those funds not knowing that they did not belong to me and per the instructions of the person who transferred them, used Western Union to send money to their "business partner". The bank has said that they do not believe I was complicit in the activity and that they are not going to report me to any other banks. Am I responsible for repaying those funds. The amount was $1,000.00
