My question involves criminal law for the state of: West Virginia
I have an issue that occurred when I didn't realize that I had a refund check to pick up at my university's cashier's office so they mailed it to my house. The check was in the amount of $2,177
Right before I found out that the check was mailed, I realized that my driver's license was missing.
To make a long story short, someone (and I have a pretty good idea of who) got the check from my mail and stole my license and went through the drive-thru of a BB&T bank and CASHED the entire $2,177.
I just got copies (front & back) of the endorsed check where this person forged my signature (although did a terrible job). My license # and DOB were written on the front of the check by the bank. The check was issued from BB&T bank as well.
I never have had an account at a BB&T bank
- This issue is just over a month old because I didn't realize that I had a refund and when I found out, it took 2 weeks for the university to get the details on the check after I had asked to put a stop payment on it when I knew it wasn't in my possession. Will there still be evidence on a drive-thru camera dating back a little over a month?
- Is there any legal action I can take against the bank for allowing this to happen?
