A detective wants to question me - help?
I was fired from my job in December of 2010. Now, two and a half years later I have been contacted by a detective, who wants me to go to the station so that hear "my side of the story." When I asked what it was about he said a fraud case filed by former employer, early in 2011, involving missing money orders, and that my name had "come up." I agreed to meet with the detective this coming Wednesday (this was two weeks ago) but since agreeing I have been doing a lot of research and everything points to telling me I should NOT meet with the detective. I do not have legal counsel at this time. If I cancel the appt., what reason do I give? And will my canceling cause me to get arrested? I have never even been inside a police station, and I am 40 yrs. old and terrified. Please advise me. Can I be arrested even if they have no evidence against me, and why is this happening over 2 years later?
