what are my rights?

August 3, 2006 4:19pm CST
a friend asked me to issue a false invoice as they neede to make a postal claim and had lost their original, which i did and didn't think any more of it, as he assured me there was nothing to worry about. however, he is now being investigated for fraud by royal mail, he was arrested today, and his laptop has been confiscated whilst they mirror his hard drive. how much trouble am i in as obviously they will come to me. he has denied the charge and has asked me to lie, even though i have no proof of purchase, no receipt of his payment through my accounts as this was a dummy invoice.

I think you are in trouble. The auditors for Royal Mail will have no problem figuring out that your invoice was false. I think it is in your best interest to be as open and honest with them as you can and hope for the best.
