Ugghhhh… as if being 3 weeks away from a wedding and a week away from closing on our house, in addition to me being unemployed, wasn’t stressful enough (after a hemisphere move about a month ago), we’re now getting investigated for international money laundering because we’ve been transferring money from Australia to the US for a few months now, trying to get all of our money over here. So now we need to provide paperwork on every transaction back to its origin (when we got it from Kingy’s work or selling a car or getting a wedding gift from the grandparents or what-have-you). Its like its all piling up lately, and all I want is for it to be June 28th, when I’ll be laying on the beach with a margarita.
Okay, I just needed to rant for a minute.

Who is investigating you? Do you have an attorney? This could be very serious. This could definitely effect your home purchase. The investigators could freeze your assets or put holds on accounts until they are satisfied. They could also inform the bank issuing your mortgage of the investigation and they could halt your closing (most bank’s won’t lend to someone being investigated for money laundering).
I hope you have a good person representing you!

@CanAmBride: I just grilled Kingy about this, I guess they said that if he can provide the paperwork (we actually have a lot of it already because we needed it to buy the house), then everything will be fine- seeing as we both have spotless records. So at this point, the bank says we’re fine to close and its not time to get a lawyer yet but yeah, definitely scary and nothing to be taken lightly.
I agree with all of you, I could REALLY use a drink
