Recently, a SM made a payment on my credit cards in the amount of $700. Obviously, I used a fraudulent bank account that I thought was legit at the time. The payment went through. Yes, I got duped. I get it. I understand the money will eventually not be there due to fraud. But will I be implicated legally? Why aren’t more SB arrested, then have to explain what happened to investigators or a judge? Should I expect to have to deal with law enforcement? Arrest? This seems like the only logical chain of events.
@liljj I’m afraid teamswirl is a little rainbows and lollipops on this one. How many of the SBs who have fallen for this scam have you heard chime back in saying everything’s fine? Just because an arrest isn’t newsworthy (if it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t lead), doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Yes, you are absolutely criminally liable. It is true, however, that the DA will be more interested in your help catching the duper, but in the meantime don’t expect to get away without a criminal record to live with.
@hoosierdaddy Like I said, chances are nothing will happen. You both are overthinking the situation. It has nothing to do with the fact that it is not newsworthy. Shit like this happens all the time. The government doesn’t have time to sit and investigate each of these cases…leave it to @hoosierdaddy to think he is the only correct one in a situation 🙄 The fact that you really think this guy will get a criminal record from this shows your stupidity. You’re way too old to be this simple minded.
