Hey guys, Story short, I met a guy on a dating app, we started talking, he wanted to meet me, saying he was really rich and wanted to help me financially. We were going to meet in a few days and then asked if I could help him invest in his bitcoin account because it was on the rise, I knew nothing about bitcoin and there was a machine right next to my house so I said a sure thing. He sent me two 1000$ checks to deposit into my bank, I took 1600 out to transfer into his bitcoin account and I kept 400$. Two days later he wanted me to do it again I said no and I sent him his money (my money truly) back to him, never thinking it was a scam. So it was a scam, my bank froze my debit and credit card and they are conducting an investigation. I had no idea this was a scam, never even crossed my mind until I saw my bank card was frozen. The bank already took 2000$ from my account. The two checks he sent me were void, so he stole 2000$ from me. Please save your "dude your dumb" I already know. I want to know if I'm in trouble, I was scammed, I'm the victim, is there any way the bank could go after me? I'm waiting to hear back from the investigators, but it's been 2 weeks already. I can take money out of my account if I show ID at my bank. PS: I live in Canada
