I was scammed by a person who 'rented' us a home that was listed for sale that he didn't own.
There were a lot of red flags along the way, and I noticed them, but didn't act as we were desperate to find a home.
He gave me account and routing numbers to a Chase bank account and I was instructed to deposit the rent and deposit payment into it.
After not hearing from them for a few days after the payment, I contacted the agency who was selling the home, and confirmed it was a scam.
I don't know what to do now. Do I go to my local police station? Or do I report this to the FBI? I never met them in person, so I don't know where they live. But I would imagine that with the account numbers the police should be able to track this person down, but I don't know.
