Sibling squabbles may seem like common occurrences within families worldwide. However, generally love wins out in the end. But, there are instances where family disputes take an unexpected turn.
A Generous Award
Megan was recently awarded a grant of $3500, and she was waiting to receive the check.
When she finally followed up with her college’s financial department, she discovered that the check was sent out, and it was even cashed by a bank back in April without her knowledge.
At this point, Megan knew something fishy was going on.
Her Sister Forged Her Signature
After some time, she realized that her very own sister had stolen the check, had recorded her social security number, and forged her signature.
Lying to the Bank
Astonishingly, her sister had convinced the banker that Megan had granted her permission to cash the check, and the check was processed with no notification of any kind to her.
Past Trouble With the Law
Adding fuel to the fire, her sister was recently arrested and was on thin ice with the law.
She’s Hesitant to Pursue Charges
If Megan pursues charges against her, her sister may very well go to prison.
Her Sister May Very Well Go to Prison
In the US, cashing a check without the knowledge of the intended recipient is called uttering a forged instrument, grand theft, or bank fraud.
It Is Against the Law in All 50 States
It is against the law in all 50 states and carries a prison term!
Megan’s grandmother and mother think that the dispute should be resolved within the family and that if she were to charge her sister, it would only escalate the situation, and she would go to prison.
Her grandma had also been a victim, mysteriously losing money from her coat pocket after withdrawing it from the bank
So Who Else Could It Be?
Her sister (the thief) lives with their grandmother’s house, so who else could it be?
Lessons to Be Learned
It is important for the sister to understand the gravity of her actions to ensure these crimes are not repeated in the future.
