Hardin was dropping off his dry cleaning on July 8, 2008 at 55th Street and Eighth Avenue when a man behind him asked “Are you Tom?”
He turned around and there were two FBI agents in front of him.
They sat down at Wendy’s, and the agents told him that they knew about the four illegal trades he had made. They also told him they knew he had been in Atlanta for his nephew’s baptism, to let him know they had been following him.
“My first thought was ‘Oh my God, my dad’s going to kill me,’” Hardin recalled thinking.
