Consumer Complaint: On the day of XX/XX/XXXX I received my regular check from my employer which it was the amount of XXXX. I later on mobile deposited onto my account and left the check in my purse for several months. on XX/XX/XXXX I went shopping at XXXX and someone stole my XXXX XXXX purse which contained my work checks from my employer. I was lucky to have my wallet on hand while my purse was on the shopping cart. unfortunally I turned around for a sec and the purse was gone with my personal belongings, phone and checks that where by digital deposit into my account. days passed and on XX/XX/XXXX my employer came up to me and asked if I re cashed a check from XX/XX/XXXX for the reason that XXXX was deducted from her business account. I later realized that the same check I mobile deposit on XX/XX/XXXX was re cashed on XX/XX/XXXX and of course my employer went to her bank and filed a fraud complaint regarding the stolen money. A week had passed and I log into my account and I realized that I was XXXX less which I was confused and of course called my bank immediately and my bank had said they took that money and put it back to my employers account which is XXXX XXXX XXXX. I was furious because now my account is being affected due to this money being less. I went to my employer to let them know money was taken out of my account and they rushed into their bank to talk to a XXXX XXXX XXXX manager to let them know that the check that was cashed on XX/XX/XXXX was thef. I called my bank several times and they could n’t do anything for me they stated that the check was cashed on Santander Bank and suggested for me to go and talk to them regarding my problem. I did go and explain my situation and said they could n’t do anything for me. I went to XXXX XXXX XXXX ( where the check is originally from ) I explained that fraud claim was made and I wanted answer, they could n’t give them to me. So basically a check with my name was disputed/cashed in Santander bank without my Identification or knowledge. I need answers and of course my money back. XXXX XXXX XXXX did n’t look into investigating bank Santander where the check was disputed and they went after my account to take the money out. I need answer I have a police report as well and when my employer went to do the fraud complaint she took the police report to show it is thef.
