I'm not sure what kind of response you are seeking here exactly that you do not already know.

This is a crime and you can certainly report it to the police and see if they will take any action. You can also sue her in civil court to recoup the amount you lost. This would be ripe for the small claims court where no lawyer is needed. Just be sure to bring any and all evidence to the hearing.

All the best,

I must agree with Mr. Natoli. Beyond his good advice I see no alternatives.

The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.
