I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
You can file a lawsuit against the person who took your money. Here is more information on the process:
If you haven't already, you also have the ability to call police and report "Theft by deception." See if they'll investigate. You can also check to see if this person has a license, and if they don't, report them to the Maryland Department of Labor for fraudulently representing himself. The state also has addresses for licensed contractors, so if he's there, that will tell you where to send the Complaint after you file.
