May 01, 2014
ALPHARETTA, Ga. A Nigerian man allegedly swindled a local woman out of funds April 12.

According to the victim, she was interested in renting a house in Alpharetta. She found a home online and contacted a Gerald Lakin of Nigeria listed on the site. Lakin allegedly told the victim she should send him $2,000 and he would give her the key to look at the house. She refused and they settled on $500. The money was sent and Lakin demanded $1,000 more. The victim refused and asked for her money back.

The victim contacted a real estate agent and found the house in question had already sold and she was the victim of a scam.
