The bookkeeper asked the standard questions, and all the answers seems to line up with Barbara's real estate dealings in Germany. However, the bookkeeper didn't notice that the scammers changed the assistant's email address by removing one letter, so unbeknownst to her, they were the ones actually communicating.

TMZ reports that the bookkeeper sent off the requested wire payment to the account listed in the original email. Afterward, she messaged the assistant at her real email. It was then that they discovered they had been victimized.

Barbara's team traced the original scam emails back to a Chinese IP address. Her attorney's are now looking into the matter, but it appears that the money is gone.
