Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Could you please explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I used to transfer money from here to somewhere in europe. I used to use an online money transfer company regulated by FCA. They asked me for some detail to make sure there is no money laundring. I provided all the evidence. However, I change a part of my bankstetment with photoshop. I am worried if I am in trouble. Because they have not yet response to my issue. They used to be fast in responding.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

Ok - it is possible they could notice and this would be fraud. This is because you have photoshop'd the statement.

But if they do not notice then you will be ok.

So if you are asking if what you have done is illegal - the answer is yes.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Is there a possibility for them to find out? Like can they ask the bank?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 year ago.

Yes it is possible. If you gave them permission to contact others (you need to check the terms of the agreement), then they could.

Unlikely but it is possible.

Does that clarify?
