You can sue here in small claims up to $5k against a corporation.I suggest a demand letter first directed to the registered agent and then when you sue you serve them in small claims.

Reference

Small claims court handles cases that involve disputes over money or property, usually below a set financial limit. In California, an individual can collect up to $7,500 in small claims court, while corporations and limited liability companies are still limited to $5,000.
