I cashed a check at my bank/credit union but later the check was found to be fraudulent. Do I have to repay the bank/credit union?

Yes. If your bank or credit union gave you cash from a check that was later found to be fraudulent, it can remove the funds from your account. 

If you believe you have been targeted by a scam, you should file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission .
