Customer Question

We live in Ms, we need to know what responsibility a Realestate company has when there is a contract for Sale of a home for over half million dollars signed by both parties. Buyers are paying cash their agent says he has the earnest money of $10,000 and has seen proof of funds. They look at the house for a second time so they can measure. They came in took pictures of furniture they wanted to buy because at one time we were going to sell some furniture because of downsizing.
We learned that there is no sale of the home, it looks like it must have been a scam and come to find out they never brought in the $10,000.00 for earnest money and they have pictures of the inside of our home we are concerned for security reasons.
My wife has RA and does not need this kind of stress and I have been sick too. What advice do you have?
