Corcoran said that ‘the money went out’ via ‘a wire transfer to Germany’ prior to her learning that the dealing wasn’t above board.

‘It wasn’t until my accountant set a confirmation to my real secretary saying, “Hey we’re confirming this one last time,”‘ she said. ‘Right there, boom! I learned that I was hit by a scammer.’
