Tell the bank everything you know to help them track down the source of the check fraud. Fraud requires intent - if you did not intentionally try to defraud the bank, they won't take action against you. They will ask to talk to your friend, and give the bank his contact info, even if that gets him into trouble. If he was using you to launder or fake money, he's no friend.

Why are they closing your account? It wasn't you that sent the check. You need to deal with yourself first- go talk to the manager of the bank and get things straightened out. Also- are you absolutely sure your friends bank account closed due to no funds? Really? I would be very careful of all of this. Not a thing to do. Your friend (is he really?) is responsible for his own funds- he can take it to a check cashing place or the bank that it was written from. Your credit and your money has been affected. Fix that. The rest of it is his problem.

You fell for something that should have been seen as an obvious scam. NEVER cash a check that was written to someone else or that you did not expect. If you gave your friend the money, he took you for a ride. Protect yourself: icks

That's so bad, all that money gone lol, try and open up a new bank account and yes that's must be a check fraud, I'm 18 too but don't know to much about banks, but I don't trust them, my advice next time u put a check in the bank, take it out in cash and put in somewhere in your house like a safe or something Never trust banks, it could be their fault not the check

Some friend. While the bank caught the fraud before they gave you any money, they decided to close the account, report you to CHEX (meaning you won't be opening a new bank account any time soon) and could have reported you to the police as a money launderer. You can appeal to the bank to take pity on you, but that's it.
