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 )
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.
