I recently changed jobs and my last check from my former employer was sent directly to my house in California. Somewhere between the payroll department, the post office and my house it was stolen and cashed. It was signed with my name and made payable to this mystery theif. I am almost positive that it was my roommate or her boyfriend that stole it and had someone cash it for them, but I have no proof. There are other issues going on with them and in our house to lead me to believe this, some of which are illegal activities. My former employer said that there was nothing they could do and that it was out of their hands. I reported it to the sheriff's dept. and they said that all they could do is take a report. The check was almost $600, so it wasn't necessarily a small amount. What do I do? Is there something I can do to press charges against this person that signed my name to the check? To make matters worse, there is no liscense number on the check or form of ID. On top of that, the copy does not show where the check was cashed. The stamp on it is not legible. Please Help!!!! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
You say you have no "proof" against your roommates, yet you say:
"What do I do? Is there something I can do to press charges against this person that signed my name to the check?"
What person? Who do you want to sue, especially without any proof? Tell me how you want to prove your case "without any proof".
I'm sorry for your loss, but when you become roommates with criminals, this is what you should expect.
