Can you tell me what the statute of limitations is in the state of "California" for prosecuting someone for withdrawing funds from my savings account without my knowledge?
Somehow my girlfriend withdrew a $1,000.00 from my savings account by using my personal information (i.e. DL number, SSN, bank account number, e-bay account info) when the account only had $37.00 in it at the time and then used it to gamble on-line. She eventually won $1,000.00which was put back into my account when she won, however, she withdrew it thinking it was her money. Little did she know that the bank had been charging the account for each transaction that caused my account to be overdrawn, which totaled $500.00 and I was unable to pay the money back. I did contact the bank and filed paperwork letting them know what had happened, but I never did file a police report as requested by the bank, which then made me liable for the moeny. I did not pursue charges against her when this occurred, but I'm hoping that I can still press charges, because now I can not open any type of bank account because the bank I had at the time did not recieve all of the funds taken when my account became overdrawn and it shows on my credit report that I still owe them $500.00.
