Clinton Township, MI asked in Banking for Michigan

Q: Hi, my name is Austyn and I have a big problem that I dont really know how it would be categorized. Bank fraud.

Okay, so I noticed one day when I went into my mobile online banking my account said negative $574.00, so I immediately went up to the bank and was addressed the issue and their response was "You deposited a fraud check" when in reality I did not. Also, the bank let the check go through without verifying my signature because it is very obvious that the signature on the check verse my signature are completely different. Then I go back to the bank with my great grandmother because she had the same thing happen to her, and they say the same thing. So, after that visit to the bank we go to the Police and file a report and the officer verified right there that it indeed was fraud and they were going to investigate. The checks that were deposited were from Virginia.
