I am purchasing a business from a third party, took a down payment to their bank (Bank of America) and conversed with the seller for several days, now he does not return my calls or texts ... I have the deposit receipt, can I get my $2,500 back?
No, you cannot get it from the bank. You will have to hope that you are able to get it back from the seller, which seems rather doubtful based on your facts. Good luck.

No, you cannot get the money from the bank. They have already put it in the seller's account. You have to sue the seller and obtain a judgment before you can garnish his bank account.
