Under Georgia law, you have a three day cooling down period, which means you have three days to reverse the transaction and get out of it and get your down payment back. Tell them you want it back.

if it has been longer and the seller committed fraud, then there is no time limit and you can get your deposit back at any time once you show there is fraud.

Please rate 4 or 5 stars and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
