Brittany,
I just want to make sure I have everything straight . . . you deposited the check, but YOU never took any money out, correct? Did you ever give her you bank account information? Does anyone else have your account info . . . is it a joint account?

What could have happened is that once the bank found out that the check was counterfeit they took the money back out of your account . . . if the check is counterfeit, then the money is not "real" and the bank does not want you to spend it.

What happens to MOST people is that they wire the money off BEFORE they know that the check is counterfeit, then once the bank finds out that the check is counterfeit THEY deduct the amount from your account to cover their butts, and that would leave you in the negative. Now, if you did NOT wire any money/take any of that money out, I don't see why you would have gone negative . . . that is where I was not clear on your story and wanted to verify if you removed any of the money from the account or if it was a joint account and someone else could have done it.

contact your bank, if you did not take out the money, then you are fine.

Communication with your bank is the key here.

Make sure you tell the bank the full story . . . let them know that when it first started off you did not know it was a scam, and now you know it is, and you did not take the money out . . . it is probably just a computer error and it will be easily fixed.

Just ignore them... after a while they'll figure that you figured it out and won't bother you any more. Just tear up the check and move on. 8)
