TCF Bank allowed approximately $4,000 worth of fraudulent activity to occur with two accounts of which I am the beneficiary. After filing lengthy reports and waiting for an extensively long time on their disputes department to make a determination, the bank informed me that I had a civil criminal suit and that they would NOT return the money.

A police report with the City of Chicago was also filed. City police informed me that I should simply drop the case since it wasn't a big enough theft to warrant their pursuit of the perpetrator.

As well, the perpetrator has signed another person's name on checks that weren't his payable to himself. He is also escaping persecution and any retribution for his crime since the police have refused to press charges against him. Meanwhile, I'm out of $4,000 and lost family property due to a lack of access to this money in order to pay the mortgage.

There are a lot more to this story that you do not disclose. Currently, the whole story benefits you only because there are many places that you did not even try to explain...

TCF Bank allowed approximately $4,000 worth of fraudulent activity to occur

What is the "activity" in this case? I am guessing from your later on story that this activity is that someone else who is not the owner of the account nor a beneficiary wrote a check of the account?

two accounts of which I am the beneficiary

Do you mean you have full access to the account now because the owner has deceased?

the bank informed me that I had a civil criminal suit and that they would NOT return the money

What is the law suit you are being charged for? Who filed the law suit against you? Why would it be involved with your bank account that you should get it? Is it involved the owner and you?

A police report with the City of Chicago was also filed. City police informed me that I should simply drop the case since it wasn't a big enough theft to warrant their pursuit of the perpetrator.

If you think you have a case, you could try a small claim court instead. I believe the amount you want for damage is within the limit they allow the pay out.

As well, the perpetrator has signed another person's name on checks that weren't his payable to himself. He is also escaping persecution and any retribution for his crime since the police have refused to press charges against him.

So what actually did he do? You kept saying that he is the perpetrator, but it actually sounds like you and him cooperate to do a crime!
