Ignorance that the check is a fraud =/= ignorance of the law
Are you agreeing or disagreeing that a person should be held responsible?
I'm just saying your position about ignorance of the law is not relevant.
Then I will defer to the more nuanced response offered by peterboro
Either way you cut it: A person who knowingly/unknowingly breaks the law by cashing a check that proves to be fraudulent had better be able to explain the reasons for their actions. It's called being held accountable for one's own actions, a trait sadly lacking these days in a society where all too many individuals are devoid of such an understanding.--
