Good afternoon. Sorry to hear about the scam. With this type of scam it is virtually impossible to get your money back. They usually are operating out of another country. You can call your banks and credit cards and inform them about the fraud and to put a block on an potential withdrawals and/or use of your account. You should also file a complaint with the Florida attorney generals office. I hope this helps.
