Did he have any reason?

For want reason was he likely to have £5,000 in cash?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I was naïve I loved him and never asked about anything. even though he had money I never used it I went and still going to work doing 2 jobs from 9 am till 11pm

Thanks but what I need to know is what was his account for this? Its a question they are likely to ask.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I don't know I never asked him but it was his account with a different name I guess maybe he didn't want to pay tax or I really don't know and don't get it. I am really confused, don't know what to think , am I in trouble even though they can see the statements that I never used his money

Thanks

It is possible that you could be prosecuted. Its fair to say that the police don't usually prosecute girlfriends of drug dealers for their involvement. Its a bit of a sexist thing really but it might assist you here.

The risk isn't really from a substantive prosecution because that is unlikely but from a proceeds of crime investigation afterwards. The fact that the funds have been through your account could be a difficulty then and render any assets potentially tainted and liable to seizure.

Wait to see whether that happens. They will not bother unless he has assets worth pursuing.

Can I clarify anything further for you?
