I worked for a company as a manager and had access to checks and was a signer on the bank account. Two years ago, my husband had surgery and was disabled and was consequently laid-off by his company. As bills piled up, I got desparate and wrote checks to myself out of my companies account. My company is now being sold and in an audit, the theft was discovered in the amount of $17,000 and I was let go. I received a letter from them telling me that I was terminated and that I was still able to cash out my 401K and that the incident was being investigated and they would decide whether to proscecute when this was completed. This was one month ago and I have not heard anything else from them. However, this evening, I tried to withdraw money with my ATM and was told the card was cancelled and both my checking and small savings account had been placed on hold. The bank told me to call in the morning and talk to someone in Loss Prevention about the hold. Can these two be related and should I get an attorney? I have not told me family anything about this and would like to keep it that way. My husband thinks I have been laid-off. I thought someone with my company would contact me about the investigation and did not worry about the bank. Any advise would be appreciated. If it is important, I live in Texas.
