New York (CNN Business) – “Shark Tank” judge Barbara Corcoran is “thrilled” about getting back nearly $400,000 after it was stolen in an elaborate email scam.

Corcoran said last week that a phishing scam swindled her out of $388,700. The scammer tricked her bookkeeper into wiring the money by using an email address that was similar to her assistant’s, requesting a payment for a renovation.

The millionaire investor said in a statement Monday that she had “already accepted” that she had lost the money and “moved on.”I really thought it was a goner,” she said.
