These scam artist need to be put in jail
State/Country relating to question: California
Filed a police report. Filed with F.B.I. www.IC3.Gov.
You mentioned filing a complaint with the police and the FBI, have you also contacted the State Attorney General's Consumer Fraud unit? They are responsible for investigating scams like this and pursuing charges against them. This is really the only other thing you can do to shut them down.

Is there a chance to do a Class Acti.on suit? I need the contact numbers for Ca. Attorney General
A class action could be a possibility, but all class actions start as a single suit with one party and then the attorneys find other parties and bring them in to then get the court to approve making it a class action, so this would start with you filing suit. Here is the CA Attorney General's Website: http://oag.ca.gov/consumers
Is their a senior Attorney in Ca that provides help I might use his service I am 81years old?
We cannot make any personal referrals, but you would need a consumer protection attorney and the best place to find one are the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.findlaw.com or http://www.martindale.comAlso, when you contact the Attorney General make sure you mention this is a possible case of financial abuse of the elderly, which is in addition to their fraud.
