FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Someone impersonated a man’s real estate agent July 1 and convinced the victim to wire $33,500 to their bank account.

The victim had been emailing his agent since June 28 about a closing cost. Two days later, he got an email from his agent’s account telling him to wire $33,500 to cover the cost.

The man did so and then called his agent the next day to confirm that she received the money. She said she had no idea what he was talking about.

The bank account that received the money was traced to New Jersey.
