My question involves criminal law for the state of: Virginia
I recently made a purchase with my debit card in the amount of $2000 through amazon. I received the item in the mail subsequently I transferred $1700 from the account to another account. This resulted in an overdraft of $1700. I did not know why the payment didnt go through at the time. Is this a criminal offense? I'm not sure if I even have overdraft protection on this account since the account has been overdrawn for a month and I havent received any fees for it.
I have two accounts with this bank. In the other account I accidentally overdrew $300 from paypal which then took it from my bank in the form of an echeck. Is this the same as a bad check? So now I have two accounts with the same bank. One in the amount of -$1700 and another in the amount of -$300. .
My credit is not in good shape and I am unemployed. What can I do to prevent criminal charges being pressed as I do not have that kind of money right now? I can maybe pay off the $300 account but cannot cover the $1700.
I don't care too much about civil charges since I am already in massive debt. Please help.
