Joint bank account. My husband has taken money and lied about it. Is it fraud?

I noticed on my joint bank account statement that £6,000 was withdrawn by cheques. We had had money back from a new build Vat return. I requested to the bank to see copies of the cheques and my husband had written them to his credit card and to himself. Previously he had given me a letter saying he had not had any of the VAT return. As I have a letter from him stating he did not have any of the funds and the cheques written by him, is this disception or fraud?

Are you required as a signature on the cheques? If not then he's perfectly entitled to move any money he wants out of the account.

It looks like a bigger problem if he's paid that much to a credit card company and he's not being honest with you.
Unless it's two signatures theres no issue.
