I'm thinking though, considering all the Nigerian internet scams out there, it must have been something online most likely!

I hope everything works out with the house!!!!! Stuff like this always happens at the absolute worse time.

Either way, you should go in person to Atlanta PD and confirm this. Better safe than sorry.

Best wishes in sorting this out :o)

I thought the same exact thing when we first got the call. I went online and got the main number to the Atlanta PD and called them back to verify that this detective worked there and that the phone number he gave us was really his. The Atlanta PD verified everything with me when I called them. Unfortunately, we can't go in person because we live n Philly, but I believe it's true now.

Whew, good! Well not good because someone still has his info, but good that the phone call wasn't fraudulent. I forgot you were in Philly...I guess that's why the detective didn't come to your house...lol

WOW! I'm so sorry Lizz! That's scary... I actually don't know anyone personally who has experienced identity theft. Hope you and Mike are able to get things straightened out soon.

We had one of our cars broken into last summer and they took a check book. The bank said they put a stop on the checks in that check book. Nothing happened right away but after about 3 months we started seeing these checks for $100-$400 coming out of his account. The bank was very nice dealing with the situation and we found out it was someone in the Military because they used a Military bank and they were buying things off craigslist with the checks.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
