I live in Broome County NY, and back in 2004, I was regularly receiving checks from a company. These checks were reimbursement checks for mileage and trips, however I called them three times when checks seemed out of the ordinary. I was told those payments were made in error and to return them. I informed them on the last call I had not been keeping track of which trips had been reimbursed and which had not and that if the checks were in the proper dollar range they would be cashed so they needed to fix their errors.
Fast forward three years, I no longer get these checks and they are telling me now I owe them $19,000 for over payments. I informed them there was no way it could be this high and demanded to see the canceled checks. Approximately $4,000, do have my signature. The others have my name forged, and I know who has done it. When I went overseas I had a friend who handled my stuff for me, and my name was forged during these times and also matches the signatures on the forgeries when I was in the US. The totals on these checks is $15,000 approximately. I am disabled now and they are trying to sue me, I know I am "judgment proof" as I only collect Social Security. However now they are talking about potentially coming after me criminally. I can not afford an attorney and am wondering if there is any way to get a court order for the bank to reveal whose name the account is in that the checks were cashed through, it is not my account. I believe that maybe with this I can present the facts to the companies attorneys and avoid criminal charges being passed my way.
