You need to speak with legal counsel, but typically if the bank clears the funds for use its their responsibility if the funds are not real.
Hard to tell from your description but sounds like fraud and money laundering might be involved somewhere in the chain of circumstances otherwise you wouldn't be worried. I think the bank unless they are very generous may soon consult law enforcement about the matter therefore best to remain silent and consult a criminal defense attorney if you are required to make any statements.
